How do you write when you're under the weather? Or do you?


I find that my muse is skittish and sometimes downright wimpy. I have a cold right now. It's not even a particularly bad cold, but I still can't seem to get up the energy or concentration to write anything long and coherent. If I try to force writing in these situations I usually end up with a bunch of crappy words and a lot of frustration. What do you do when circumstances throw your creativity off kilter? Are there ways to loosen yourself up anyway, or is it best to put off writing for a better day? Any way I can "toughen up" my muse?
