I’m having a ton of trouble with my right arm/wrist/hand.
It hurts to type, it hurts to use a mouse, and it just generally hurts. Tendinitis, I think. Too much time on the computer, I’m sure. I’ve been popping Advil and trying to ignore it. I’ve been trying to use my left hand as much as possible.
I have to admit that my strategies aren’t working.
I really want to finish my NaNoWriMo novel. But I’m starting to think that’s not going to happen after all. I wrote about 900 words this morning and it resulted in my arm throbbing. And being 9,000 plus words behind, I kind of need to be able to make it through more than 900 words a day.
Unfortunately, I think I’ve got to take a break. At least as much as I can. I have some freelance work to do, so I can’t avoid the computer completely. But I have to, as much as possible. It’s horrible timing. I’ve just quit my job and have tons more time to write now…and my arm is acting up and I can’t. Maybe I’ll try to keep writing in my notebook, and see how that goes.
In any case, the blog will be offline for a while. I don’t know how long. As long as it takes, I guess. And if you send me an email and I’m slow to respond/don’t respond, don’t hold it against me.
As for the rest of you NaNoWriMo-ans, good luck! Keep going!
