I am still editing NN4. I’ve been at it a week. It keeps making me sick. Hopefully next week, I can get something done about my ears. At which point editing will go much faster. Right now with the “jumping” around that happens when you accept/reject changes, address comments, it keeps triggering vertigo. This means I work for thirty minutes to an hour and then I get sick and feel like a zombie the rest of the day.
Last year in March and April we were discussing putting a tube in my right ear to deal with Eustachian Tube Dysfunction. We stopped because my father died and COVID hit big time. However, it’s obvious we’re going to have to continue that this year.
Someone asked me an interesting question this week “Are you worried about getting a tube put in your ear drum with the Complex Regional Pain Syndrome?” Yes and no. Yes, I am slightly worried we will cause the pain to spread to my ear, but I can’t live like this. I had a doctor’s appointment across town Friday and the drive there and back triggered vertigo. I had to come home and take a several hour nap. I felt okay when I got up, but I was only able to edit about 45 minutes total yesterday as a result. That’s less than a chapter. Seeing as how I can’t hardly ride in a car or edit without getting sick, I’ll just have to risk spreading pain to my ear with a tube, because it is less problematic than having vertigo 90% of the time.
Because of my ear issues, I did not post premium content last week… which worked out. You should stop being charged for premium content this month as I prepare to move it in June/July from WordPress to Patreon. Unfortunately, I’ve been so busy, I haven’t had time to dedicate to the move.
Elysium and Mercurial Dreams audiobooks are still in production. We are hoping to get them out sometime in late May. I will update you when they finally release. This blog will continue, I am only moving Premium Content away from the blog. My thoughts plus release information will still be available here.
