Still sick

Still feeling sick, so I’m going to rest up and return to The Walking Dave on Monday.

I feel like I should’ve rested yesterday rather than gone out walking because when it came time to do the Author Hangout last night, I was sick, grouchy, and my back hurt (from my crappy bed), so I felt like an asshole in the Hangout as it went later than planned and Sean kept rambling, making the show longer.

Usually, I’m up for these things to go for two hours or more. But last night, I just wanted to go sit on the couch, so apologies to those who came and got less than my best.

And apologies to Sean for being a dick to you.

I appreciate everyone who showed up to the Hangout and hope to make the next one more fun.

Also, thanks to everyone who has commented or emailed me regarding The Walking Dave podcast, I appreciate all the nice thoughts.

I’ll be answering questions in the podcast (though I may answer some in the comments, too, if they seem more pressing).

I’ll probably get back to walking tomorrow, or Saturday, depending how much better I feel. I’m taking antibiotics, so I’m hopeful it will be soon.

It’ll also be good to be ahead on the podcasts by a day or two so I can update them at night and you’ll have a new podcast each morning, rather than waiting for me to post in the middle of the day.

OK, time to end this post so I can get back to writing Crash. Even though I’m not walking, I AM still working.

I need to give this draft to Sean on the 31. And before you think, Man, Sean’s such a jerk, expecting Dave to work sick, remember … I’ve been working on this story since last August and have missed countless deadlines.

It’s been a beast!

And in all honesty, I’ve been working on this story since I was 18, so, yeah, I need to just push it across the finish line and hope for the best.

The good news is that we’re NOT in a rush to publish the story. If it needs more time after Sean’s edits, and my next pass through, we’ll give it the proper time. But I’ll at least have finished the hardest part — getting the first draft done.

A quick note: tomorrow is the 100th episode of The Self Publishing Podcast, and we’ll be announcing what our Kickstarter is going to be at 2 PM EST, so be sure to catch that. I’ll post a link on Twitter, follow me @thedavidwwright and I’ll post it the minute the show goes live.

  1. I thought you were fine on the hangout last night. No need to apologize. It was awesome and I only wish that it started a little later to allow me to hang out rather than just type my questions and comments. Maybe next time.

    Feel better man

  2. feel better, dave!

    You should stick the author hangout in the podcast feed again… if it was good. I’m sure you weren’t as bad as you think.

    Congrats on #100 tomorrow. I noticed you’re going to release it on Wed instead of Thu for the two year anniversary? Awesome…

  3. I’ll kick Sean’s butt for you anyway…(because we know you want to!) (^_^) Loved your son on the last podcast by the way. Keep up the great work and get some rest.

  4. Thanks for the chat on comics! It was cool to hear about something that you really enjoyed growing up… Sorry that you are sick! I have been sick this week as well, and it really stinks to have to drag yourself out of bed to work. So kudos to you for actually walking while sick! Looking forward to hearing more when you are better!

    • Thanks, though I did stay in today. I’m on my second round of antibiotics, so I figured it best to wait till they do their job before getting back outside and risk staying sick longer and having to go BACK to the doctor’s. Hope you feel better, too.

  5. Man, I hope you don’t have the osprey flu… Hope you feel better, man.

  6. Since you were 18? Holy WOW dude–it’ll be good to finally get that one out of your head, i’m thinking. Maybe that’s why finishing a book feels so much like giving birth–I end up feeling 10 pounds lighter!

    Feel better–you’ll need your strength to face Dr. Evil Osprey when you venture forth again. 🙂

  7. Hi again Dave,

    Hope you’re feeling better soon. Thanks for your advice about recording as you walk. You’ve inspired me to actually do my walking and talking podcast (along with our labrador Lottie) over at: http://mikeycampling.com/2014/03/walks-lottie-2-podcast-writing-publishing/.
