Yesterday I spent a good portion of the day working on my story. The other things on my list did not get done. I’d be disappointed but I added 10,000 words to my story and got a general list of scenes that will lead to the end of the book (I think).
Pain level is still high so instead of working in my office today I’ll be in the recliner. My classical music is on and I’m going to work on my story. If it goes well I might just finish it today. I noticed last night that I had discoloration on my left knee and a red spot on my right ankle. This is a good indicator that my gout is being obnoxious. I put a heating pad on my ankle and took a second dose of my arthritis medicine. Today I’ll take it easy and see if that will help ease some of the pain and flaring of the gout.
Like reading a book, I got to a good stopping point last night and opted to try to sleep. Mostly I was successful. I actually got a large chunk of sleep. This usually helps the pain level.
Ken watched football and I wrote. That will probably be our day today as well. It felt really good to write for a good eight or more hours yesterday. My mom and one of my sisters stopped in and then I drove my van to pick something for them that wouldn’t fit in their car. That took an hour out of my writing time. I also chatted with one of my daughters. Maybe there was a bit of balance in my life.
