I’m glad I did NanoWriMo again this year. Even if my novels don’t see the light of day, it’s good to be writing & for it to be fun. This year’s effort I just finished. My program had more words than NanoWriMo’s official validator, so I had a bit of catching up to do, but not by much. I know this one will need work too, but I’m glad it’s done.
To see the exciting possibilities of 3D printing in medicine, check out this cool slideshow from the Cleveland Clinic:
This was a professional issue that would irk me while I was working at Medscape. I’d see such embargoes come through via email on important information & it would instantly anger me.
I would think to myself, “This is a free press, if you’re going to release important news, release it when you want it released. Don’t hold everyone hostage to print it all on a certain day or under your chosen timing & make them sit on it because you’re not ready for it to come out yet. Don’t be an effing tease.”
I don’t mean to alarm anyone with sharing this. But it is a concern that sometimes can or might happen to transplant patients or those in the hospital who need for surgical or other reasons to spend time in the ICU.
It’s also good for professionals to be aware of this too, so they can watch for signs to minimize the potential impact it may have on someone they love/care for.
Last night I hit 25,036 words! I consider this as pretty amazing for me considering how off my attention has been at points & how crummy I felt the first part of the month.
I’m still a bit behind, but not terribly. I still need less than 1800 words a day to finish on time. I’ve been doing over that pretty consistently or if I’ve fallen a little short, I’ve been averaging the new daily average or better which is around 1700 words.
