I’ve been dealing with some family issues and a kidney stone.  Ugh.  I spent a week on Vicodin and remember almost nothing about it.

And all that time I had expected to be writing?  Ha!  I think I got half a chapter written.  I still haven’t figured out if it makes sense or not.

I was about a week and a half behind on Cannibal Dreams… Now, I’m close to three weeks behind.  I have 2 1/2 days to get the last 25,000 words written.  My brain is still toast.  I have written about 1,000 words in four hours today.  It’s going to take a massive spurt of inspiration and writing time to get it done by 31 July.

Ok, break over, back to work.

    Glad you are feeling better! Good luck with the writing!


  2. I’m glad you’re feeling better. I’ve had more than a dozen kidney stones. They are miserable.


    • This was my first and I was pretty sure something had ruptured inside my body when it hit. It was 14mm, but had already started breaking up, so they decided to let it “pass naturally” because they said the sonic pulverization was just as bad as the stone and I’d be down just as long. I’ve had two follow-up appointments and the stone did break up “naturally,” but it sucked. If I never go through it again, it will be too soon!
