Friday 11 weeks

Okay, so it’s been 11 weeks now, since I fell over breaking my elbow. These last two weeks have been horrible. So yesterday I went back to the doctors, and I’m being sent back to X-ray etc. sucks. I wanted to be doing much better, but I’ve stalled. 

I don’t know if it’s a combination of upping the exercise and the cold, or if I’ve just pushed myself too much. I’ve literally had to take a step back this week and not do what I was asked, because I couldn’t. I just couldn’t do the weights. So I’ve tried to just not let it stiffen up and keep both wrist and elbow moving, I know the physio will see it’s not done a back flip. 

 

So depressed. 

 

Writing, I’m doing fab, exciting stuff always on the go. It’s a good job or I think I’d have pulled all my hair out. 

 

Catch you soon.

25th day and validation :)

It is a wonderful feeling. I stayed up last night with a couple of my nano friends in the chat room. We had an epic 10k day to push a couple of our region on. It was the most fun I’d had in ages. There were others who were just happy to join in and write with us, but for four of us. Han, Kelza, Coffee and me we managed the 10k in one day.

It had been a moment of madness. I’d been pottering about for a few hours, chatting and doing a little writing, and it was quiet till around lunchtime, then people came on and for some reason, someone mentioned ‘I could do with a 10k day.’

That was it challenge drawn…. and we were off.

At that moment in time, the most I’d managed was just under 9k in one day, so it seemed really possible.

I wasn’t the first to finish, our lovely Hannah was, shortly followed I might add by Kelza. Then a while later with their cheering Coffee and me (kanundra) made it.

I had 17 words to go after the last war, so I pushed on and did it.

Although the 10k day wasn’t what I needed to win nano, I completed a while ago, it was the fun of being with others while writing that just made the day so special and helped Coffee towards the winning post.

There I decided to stay up past midnight haven’t made it at all this year. As nano no sleep, broken elbow and early to rise did. But I stayed up to validate my win and it felt fantastic.

To those of you who have seen the month through with me, I’ll be in chat, urging others to their goal, be it the 50k or not. It is the personal win that counts.

I did not think for a moment I would be able to write through the pain I’ve been going through and have a blast too.

Thank you one and all.

40k and climbing :)

Hit 40k today, taken it a lot slower these last couple of days. As I needed my arm to rest and my head to catch up. 

Been editing today as well, (first book) as I meet with EJ later. 

Keep the positive vibes coming and the chatter, 🙂
