I’ve made a tough call. I’m not abandoning my play, just setting it aside for now.
A few months ago, my numbers were unexplainably down about 30 perecent.
After some steroid pushes & medication changes, things were still looking a bit funky & my numbers still hadn’t risen, so I needed another bronchoscopy (scope of my lungs).
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.
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.
I left social media recently due to some shaming & bullying. It was just too negative overall lately. Even with articles that I used to enjoy reading & some pages it just seemed there was a negative feel to it & that any post or article anyone bothered to put up, someone had an issue with.
It wasn’t just the election, but that definitely made it worse.
Today is Halloween. Tomorrow I will have been listed for 8 months. Next Monday, I have my next check-up.
Then on the 9th, I’ll be in Baltimore to discuss dual listing with John Hopkins.
