Merry Monday – Broken

I didn’t do a lot this weekend beyond watch TV because I felt broken.

I missed martial arts on Sunday as my neck was killing me. I think I’ve been sleeping in strange positions because of the upper oblique muscle I pulled while sneezing on Friday and that’s aggravating my old herniated disc problem. I hope it resolves before the weekend as I have a martial arts demo and it would be ideal if I could practice before then.

Yes. A sneeze broke me. I suppose this is a sign that I’m getting older.

I like this video for giving me more options to tame my neck pain. Maybe it’ll help me heal it once and for all.

I still managed to get some cleaning done and feed myself. I’m annoyed at this silly injury. I’m going to try not to let it delay my Couch 2 5k start, but at least I can get some writing done while I’m broken? I’ll try a fast walk instead of a run…

As far as writing goes, I heard back on my first novel. They said it’s not quite polished enough, but encouraged me to resubmit after having some people go through it and help me fix it up! So I’ve been recruiting beta readers to help with that. I’m now making a list of readers for round 2. I had no idea so many people would want to help me with this
thing! IT’s really heart-warming and makes me want to cry. Happy tears of course.

I’ve also been converting my horror novel to third person as it was originally first person, but I felt like that was too limiting for the story that I want to tell. Some of it feels like too much telling instead of showing, so I’ll be¬†fixing that at some point. I feel like it’s important to get the story written first and fix those things later. I guess that’s my writing process; writing in layers. I’ve talked about that before.

I really don’t mind that I have more work ahead of me as I want to give it my best shot. I always feel like I can do better and it’s time to dig deeper.

Off to walk quickly then continue working on my horror novel.

Guid cheerio the nou,
