July & CampNaNo


Several of my fellow writer’s with the Columbia Novelists’ Group participated in CampNaNo this past month.  A big congrats to all of them!  Whether they made their word count goals or not, July is a hard month to try to get in a lot of words.  There are a ton of distractions and the weather is almost constantly screaming Come outside and play!

As for my July, I didn’t participate in CampNaNo.  I did publish a book and write a novella.  Expect the novella to be released towards the end of this month.  It goes to the editors tomorrow and I need to get a cover, but it will all get done.

Today I’m taking it easy.  I got a migraine late last night.  And while I got rid of it, even when it’s gone, it looms over me.

And my hands hurt.  At thirty-two years old (thirty-three this month, expect something cool to happen that day), my fingers already have days when they won’t straighten completely and they swell.  It’s been seven years since the doctors told me I was getting arthritis in them.  At the time I had protested and demanded a second opinion.  Oddly, the second opinion told me the same thing and for all my claims that it wouldn’t happen to me, especially not at this age, I find myself keeping a bottle of arthritis medicine for weeks like this one and special gloves that can be heated and slipped over them.  I can’t imagine what they will look like when I’m in my sixties and seventies.

An interesting side note about this:  Now that I have fingernails, on days like this, when they hurt and don’t want to straighten, they remind me more of claws than fingers.

Ok, I’m off to heat up the special gloves for my hands and read a book.  Again, great job CampNaNo’ers!
