Wherein The Writer Posts An Update

Hi all!  I’ve been writing.  Seriously working for the first time in a number of months and I feel…relieved, to be honest.

This novel is going a different way and there are several different sections written, waiting to be inserted at the proper time and order.  I’ve never written like this before and it feels weird and exhilarating.  Now I have reached the beginning chapter so will start keeping tabs on words.

Oh…yeah:  I have been challenged to truthfully recount my days with the pain and how I handle the world.  This challenge comes from a friend and cousin whom I love very much and I am taking them up on it, though I won’t begin this task until tomorrow.  For now – words:

Total words so far chapter one:  1755

Reason for stopping:  Laptop began to grumble about being too hot.

Favorite line today:  N/A

About Henrietta Handy

I have returned home to the mountains. No more am I "a mountain-girl far from home." Diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at 2 1/2, I understand pain, fatigue, laughter, joy, and love all while on crutches and in wheelchairs. This blog is just about me, mostly the writing side, but there are forays into so many different topics. I am married to a wonderful husband who puts up with my writing, knitting, yarn, with the love of a saint. We have fur babies, and one cat who rules us all.

    Well, favorite line could have been “Laptop began to grumble about being too hot.” Is there a special sound card for that? Do you distinguish between “fan grumbles” and “disk motor grumbles,” or are they considered on par? And hot hot is your laptop? Does it get asked for dates a lot by other laptops?

    I’ll toss in a pair of sentences from my latest it-may-yet-come-to-pass, “Melyssa’s found someone who can help me? Damn, woman, if true I’m going to have to sacrifice a chocolate mousse or three at your altar.”
