Clawing my way back

I haven’t worked on my novel in almost two months. I have completed three short stories in that time but the last one I submitted to my publisher was like a month ago. Since then I’ve done no writing – though I have a perfectly valid reason. 

I had to have emergency surgery and have my gall bladder removed. 

It was FUN.

Ugh. While I feel tons better (no more waking up in the middle night in such terrible pain it leaves me vomiting), I am having a hard time getting back into the project … mainly because I’m now seriously doubting myself. 

I don’t know how to find that confidence that had me going before.
