Weekly writing check-in: the one with neck x-rays and red riding hood

Another short post this week. There is something wrong with my neck/shoulder. Neck x-rays have ruled out anything really terrible, and for now, I’m visiting the physical therapist twice a week in hopes of relieving the pain/tingling/numbness in my right arm and hand.

As you can imagine, this makes it difficult to write or do a lot of other things as well. I spent this week doing more research and scribbling some notes.

On the bright side, I managed a submission, a rejection, an acceptance, and a publication. So. There’s that.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with the pinched nerve

Ouch. This will be short because I have a pinched nerve in my right shoulder (and, of course, I’m right-handed). Fortunately, I finished the writing I needed to before this happened (or maybe it’s why it happened–I don’t know). I submitted a reprint this week. And now, I’m going to do a little research and reading and ice my shoulder.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with allergies and the writing vortex

Do you feel that? It feels like … pollen in the air. But everything is so green and lovely and hive-inducing. Still. I’ll take spring.

So, I pulled on my writing cap this week (well, in my case, it’s a Doctor Who T-shirt) and I’m in a bit of a writing vortex, where I hope to stay for a while. I’m still planning and researching and reading, but it’s nice to add in some actual writing to the mix.

Otherwise, a quiet week. Two rejections, and I need to send those back out again. But for now, I’m going to put on my scribbling suit, lock myself in a room somewhere (or just sit at the kitchen table), and write.
