August 2013 #writemotivation update 2

Um...wasn't it just July?

Seriously. Where the hell did August go?

I don't know. It's weird. Some months it just flies and some months it just crawls. And sometimes it just flops about and does nothing.

Ok. So, here is where things stand. The wrist is getting way better. Up to 40 degrees of passive movement (that's when my therapist pulls my fingers down and I cry)--speaking of my therapist, she'll try to convince you that she's a little old lady...she isn't. She's taller than me.

Anyway, I'm weening off the brace which means I can type better. This should help my writing immensely. I've also started to get a good feel for my new MCs voice. this means I can stop flailing and get more writing down.

Provided I stop goofing off...and seeing as I don't have the excuse of the brace getting in the way...

Anyway, here is my goal update:
  1. Write every day. This will be hampered by the wrist surgery, but still something I need to strive for. I should be out of the brace almost 100% by the end of the week. This should help me type better.
  2. Blog once a week. Yup!
  3. Cheer on my #writemotivation tweeps I've thrown some Dino Zombie Cheerleader Ninja Throwing Star Cookies about.
  4. Read two books. I started Red Shirts by John Scalzi. It's a fun book and has lots of references to Star Trek. It's awesome.
  5. Participate in the Pay It Forward Giveaway (see button on the side-bar). Done.

Also, I'm playing around with my blog theme (if you haven't noticed). Not sure it will stay this way, but we'll see.

And now for the cutest freaking picture in the universe...seriously...it's adorable.

'Till Next Time.


  1. I think you are one fantabulous person and will conquer those goals! You show them who's boss or I will send Ninja Dino to kick it!


  2. I admit, that is a pretty darn cute picture.

  3. You'll do great once the braces come off -- brave if you to try and type with them on!

    Thanks for the pic-- it brought me a smile!
