When life decides to take off at warp speed you sort of have to hold on and go with it! Right now I can say life is “good”. It isn’t what I expected considering everything happening in the past, but, physically I’m improving and the words are almost over-flowing. At the end of the day I am exhausted from physical therapy, occupational therapy, and writing!
One novel is off being considered as we speak. I was going to put it on Kindle, but, after listening to several pieces of advice I submitted it. Now I am working on a piece just for Kindle.
This new piece taught me I “plan” out my pieces by writing them out manually first with pen and paper. The moment I begin typing in the piece things change. Sometimes drastically. Areas of the story expand and I actually see places I made mistakes of plot, continuity, etc. At first I was really annoyed by it, but now I merely pick up the pen, pack of paper, and just get to work. Since I’ve accepted this about myself the words are coming much easier and the pieces are actually getting done. They are reaching conclusions! *gasp!*
Besides these positives, I am proud to say the pain is more under control than it’s been in the past ten to fifteen years! It was a struggle for pain management and I to reach a this point and for them to accept I am not there just looking for drugs, but now we have reached this plateau I no longer have panic attacks every time appointment time rolls around!
In other, more mundane news, living with Sniffles and Cheyene is turning out to be one of the better things in our lives. Blending two households and two packs is difficult, but we’re doing pretty good and, as I said, life is progressing for me and The Husband.
It has been SO long since there has been progress in my life I look around me at all the “good” and just feel blessed and happy.
