If you saw last week’s post, you probably read about my wrist issues. I got the results of the MRI! There’s no cyst. In fact, the doctor doesn’t know what’s wrong with me, and can’t see anything in the scan or x-rays that he can fix or even address. (Thus is the life at the Town’s End, as it is the same story with my husband’s recurring foot issues, and no, they aren’t the same doctors.) The doctor’s only suggestion was a cortisone injection to see if it has any effect. Well, it had an effect–I got a cortisone flare that hurt worse than the actual wrist issue. The pain still isn’t 100% gone, so it’s too soon to tell whether or not the shot will do me any good. It did hamper my weight-lifting routine a bit because Monday night, I couldn’t even twist the lid off my tea, let alone lift a dumbbell. *sigh* Maybe it’ll be like they say in the Neverending Story — “It has to hurt if it’s to heal.”
On the writing front, today is Insecure Writer’s Support Group day. Had it arrived earlier this week, I would’ve told you all about my insecurity with what I was going to do with two characters for a five-day span in my timeline. I was uninspired, and anything I did think up was superfluous to the plot. But after a chat with my sis-in-law, I got it worked out, so I’m no longer insecure about it. In fact, I’ve written about 2K words in the past week, including 500+ yesterday. So no insecurities to report this month. I got through the hurt and managed to heal.
IWSG Question of the Month – What do you love about the genre you write in most often?
Right now, I’m on a world-building kick, from moons and comets to extinct dragonkin and the mortal races. Will most of this come into play in the book? Pfft, no! But my world is my playground, has been for the majority of my life, which is what I love about fantasy.
Have you ever had any undiagnosable physical issues? Do you ever get into a book-timeline funk? Do you love getting lost in a creative world?
