Backs, Ribs, And Deadlines

I haven’t been able to write for several days because of weather changes and the resulting accompanying back pain. The past three days being the worst. Sunday I couldn’t get out of bed. Monday, The Husband took off work to look after me because neither of us were sure I wouldn’t need to go to the E.R.  However, I am pretty convinced the emergency department would tag me as a “drug seeker” and not do anything truly helpful.  Today has been hellish, just not quite as bad as yesterday.

Right this very second I am feeling better than any point earlier.  I am very thankful for the reprieve, too.

Amid all the pain in said back, including sternum, the one thing on my mind has been the novel and finishing the final draft in order to get it on to Kindle by the end of this month.  I have fluctuated between despair – half convinced I wasn’t going to make my deadline – and pure determination, because this is adraft.d storyand I hope people like reading it as much as I am writing the story. The Husband told meifi could get in my wheelchair and stay upright long enough to work to go for it, but if I couldn’t do that a good idea might be to cut myself a break and heal for a while before vanishing into Thriller Land.  Yes, he did make me smile.

Tomorrow is another day, and, God willing, there will be more words added to the final draft.

Hoping you are having good word count days!☺


About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.

    A page a day for me. I’d like to do more, but there are all these other things that need to get done, and dealing with a sore throat (partner’s, not mine). Not your level of problem, but aren’t all problems more time-consuming than we expect them to be?
