I figure I should let you know I’m okay. It’s been an interesting day because yesterday was spent painting/cleaning and I did not sleep well. This morning, I had an interview to answer, and since I was writing in a hurry it’s immensely long.
So I haven’t been able to write here. I have guest posts but hate to “short” them on hours on the blog.
I’ll just give a quick update on where I am (I almost typed who I am, which tells you all you need to know.)
I am now off the pain meds except for super-motrim, and that for the anti-inflammatory properties. There are some hangover effects, though those are diminishing every day. Just odd holes in my memory, but again, fewer every day.
The stitches are ALMOST healed, so I don’t feel like I should have a warning saying “cut at the dotted line.”
The infection is much better and I’m assured the antibiotic will act for another week.
Mind-wise, it’s coming back too. I’m starting to get flashes of story, weirdly almost all short stories. I think this is part of my mind KNOWING I don’t have the time to sit down and slam out a novel, or even the ending of one, while I’m fixing the other house.
That’s finally starting to show progress, after weeks of its seeming like I was working in vain.
Depending on when we can get a handyman in and if we can afford one, we should be done in another week or two. A bit late, but since my surgery was FAR more invasive than expected, not too bad.
I have a bunch of donations to answer to — I am NOT forgetting you — it’s just the other house is eating all my waking time and Through Fire is getting the rest.
Once Through Fire is done there will be new stuff in the subscriber’s page. meanwhile I’m contemplating starting to edit/add to drawer books, once the Darkships and Dragons are done, and that to will probably first appear in subscriber space. Eh. Maybe I should give you some shorts over there, in the mean time, as a way to scratch both our itches.
Okay, and now I have to (again) go paint walls. Tomorrow there will be post, mine or guest.
