Out for the Count

Well only temporarily. I was planning on blogging twice a week, Mondays and Fridays during NaNoWriMo, and leaving the reveal of the new blog until December. The reveal is still set, but I fell through on the twice a week thing.

I have been going strong on my daily word count which is a good thing. I am shooting for 1,667 words a day and have been hitting a little over 3,000. Great, I thought, because I know days will come where I won’t be able to think of a single thing to write and I will have some cushion.

I also knew I would have hand, well actually finger and thumb surgery, and I would be down for half a day. Well half turned into a full day. I didn’t realize my middle finger was going to hurt so bad I would be taking 2 Vicodans every four hours, knocking me out in the process.

When I had the surgery last spring it was only on my left thumb. I only had to take one pill and I was pretty much good to go after that. I tend to have high toleration to pain and the only reason I was not able to do a lot then was because it was my dominate hand. But damn, now my middle finger feels like someone broke it and then stomped on it a few times for good measure.

I am hoping by tomorrow I will be able to write for a longer period of time and work on my novel.


  1. I hope your finger heals soon. Ouch. And good going on nano!

  2. Oh, sorry to hear you’re in pain!! Hope you heal quickly, Cat! Sending you prayers for a speedy recovery. (And AWESOME JOB on the Nano!!!) xox

  3. Hope your finger heals quickly (of course – you could always strengthen it by being rude to bad drivers!!) and good luck with NaNoWriMo. I wish I had the time to do it – maybe next year …

  4. well hello! I found you on the insecure writers page. I’m attracted to blogs that have animal names in them. especially cats and monkeys. I’m also participating in NANO – its my first, and as you can see, I’m getting distracted. Just wanted to give you encouragement. its especially difficult with a finger injury! you really do have an excuse if you need one. okay… time for me to get back to writing!

  5. Hi, girlie! Left you something on my blog today! TGIF!!
