So I just got shot.

This is my favorite jacket.

While walking back from the store with the girls, a car full of idiots with a high powered paintball gun opened fire on the sidewalk, getting us in the back and high shoulders.

I’m currently in the ER, as the impact kicked up what is usually a morning attack of neuropathy and it hasn’t walked off yet. I feel like I’m leaning on hot coals.

OH, GENTLY CARESS.

GENTLY CARESS, AM I BEHIND OR WHAT?

(Expletives Bowdlerized for your amusement today).

I stopped to do a word count last night and got a good look at the par numbers, and before I could do anything else I’d dropped a nice-sized “OH, GENTLY CARESS ME” bomb, staring at a deficit of ABOUT 12K WORDS.

I didn’t even have to think too hard about what the gently caress had happened since I already knew—it was the gawrsh-danged neuropathy, making it too hard to move or type on several days. So many behind days.

And then there’s work. We finally get hours out of nowhere and it’s like a gauntlet, and I have absolutely no idea how I’m supposed to deal with this level of exertion at the same time that my own dang body is trying to send me to heck in a bicycle basket.

So I’m buckling down for a WORD SPRINT today.

…as long as nothing goes wrong, such as dropping another gently caressing glass of coconut milk on the computer…

MEANWHILE, IN NANOWRIMO…

We are halfway through the month, and I am less than halfway through where I should be at this rate. I have fallen behind, thanks in no small part to the machinations of my peripheral neuropathy dealing incredible damage to my hands. But I’ve begun to see if I can get the catching up part of this done. I’m making a point of it to NOT have my word count total visible, as when I actually LOOK at the totals, I start to freak out. As of this writing right here…I have no idea how I am doing.

 

And now, back to the grind. I REALLY want to make it Four Times.
