I have actually had a little bit of success writing lately, but today I'm going to take a break and have a "book day." I need to get caught up on my reading.
First of all, I want to get more into Diana Driver's Ninth Lord of the NIght. I'm enjoying the way she brings you right down into the Guatemalan jungle. It always helps to read other authors, and see how they handle things...and this has the added benefit of being an enjoyable book.
Also, I'm going to be studying up on my new book on right brained children. It seems I may have a couple of those, and might even be a little that way myself. It never hurts to educate yourself on something new. When you stop learning you stop living...or something like that.
As I've said, I've had a little success working on Argiope. Skipping ahead some scenes has loosened up the mental logjam, and actually inspired me on how to correct and improve some earlier scenes as well. Sometimes it just takes backing up and doing things in a different way to start moving forward again.
The house is clean, which is always a good feeling. The only downer right now is that I'm still adjusting to my new braces. The edges of the plastic that molds to my foot is in a different place than my old braces, which means I have to go through the whole rubbing and blister phase before I'm used to these. Sigh. It's all good though. They really do work better than my old ones.
Speaking of braces, Rowan has just about disassembled that splint of hers and it won't be a minute too soon when we finally get her in to see that orthopedic guy for a new splint or cast. That was supposed to be done on Weds but they rescheduled due to an orthopedic emergency. What's an orthopedic emergency? I didn't know orthopedics HAD emergencies.
Anyways, it's all good and things are going forward at my house. I hope everybody out there is doing well too. Happy Thursday!
