Hey there...how have you guys been?
I apologize for my month away, but I seem to be feeling better, and I'm going to take that as a good sign. I, the girl who vowed never to have surgery, am 4 weeks post-op on Thursday! I'll spare you the graphic evidence, but suffice it to say that I'm healing up nicely.
Overall, the pain has actually been manageable, much more so than I thought it would be. I'm about 4 weeks away from wearing shoes again, which feels too good to be true (Getting older is dumb).
If you missed the memo, and absolutely none of this makes sense, apologies! I got a bunionectomy on my right foot-this is where they go in and cut away part of the bone so that the metatarsals align correctly. I'm such a glutton for punishment that I'm having the other foot done in late October. Happy Halloween to me!
I'm also reading and writing as I am able. I'll admit to skipping around on projects, but hey-I'm writing, right? It all counts in the end. And I'm coming closer every day to figuring out how I do and do not work. This shit is hard, yo!
I shooooould....maybe...possibly...dare I say it....have a thing ready for the world by Halloween. It's the most vulnerable thing I've ever written. A book in verse with themes that include Heaven and Hell, Trauma, Abuse, Murderous Trees....look at me capitalizing all these things. Suffice it to say it's unlike anything you've ever read before. There's a vietnam vet that has a direct line to God. There's a world slowing going to shit. There are addicts and demons and angels and time travel. There's dissociation and loss and courage and other things besides. It's a real trip.
I just hope it isn't awful.
Who wants to read it? *laughs maniacally*
But seriously...you know where to find me. The cover alone is worth it.
I have a feeling some characters aren't going to make it.
