Vision Issue

Yes, I was supposed to blog on Wednesday. I was actually going to get that blog post up today. Lo and behold, this morning one of my nose pads to my glasses snapped off. The metal must have weakened enough and had it with me pushing my glasses up my nose.

Right now, if I wear my glasses, I have a sharp piece of metal digging into my nose. Hopefully I'll be able to get a temporary repair done tonight, but if they can't glue it back on at all, even for a short time, I will be without for likely a month (insurance - that every 12 month thing for coverage sucks, you know).

I am currently developing a headache just trying to type without the glasses!

So, posts will be further delayed (as will writing and other things that I would love to be able to see to do) because I would prefer metal not digging into me and gouging a hole in my nose on a regular basis.

Maybe I'll take a nap--that doesn't require vision. ;)

OK, time to hold my glasses to my eyes to see how many misspellings I made while typing blind.

NEXT UP: When vision returns, I'll post about In Your Write Mind 2013.

Camp NaNoWriMo - July 2013

Wait, what, you were expecting me to keep to my word on exactly what I intended to blog about today? Maybe I would have if I haven't been dealing with getting my luggage back from the airlines for two days straight. My trip home was hellish. It will be vented in a brand new Grinka and Syndago story.

And...that is the first thing on my list for Camp NaNoWriMo. I'll be getting started a few days later than originally intended, but the goal I've set is 25,000 words. Totally doable. Especially since the morning sickness is pretty much gone and my 5-year-old will be spending a week with my in-laws! After I finish the super rough draft of the new Grinka story, I'll work on the super rough draft of Into the Ash, the first novel in my Elements of Anian series.

Yes, I have revisions to do on Dead As Dreams, but since I haven't touched anything for a few months, I don't want to worry about perfection for a month, and then my gears should be well oiled.

I promise, next post will be about In Your Write Mind. I just need a few days to organize things and figure out what specifics I'll post about. A lot of great workshops (and a lot of fun socializing). =)

Don't forget about Writing Quest - July! Of course my goal this month is simply Camp NaNo.

So, anybody else diving into Camp NaNoWriMo this month? It allows you to key in your own word count goal - no need to aim for the usual 50,000 words!

NEXT UP: July 10 - In Your Write Mind 2013 (I mean it this time)
