I've had very little hand pain for a couple of weeks but today it is pretty horrendous. I've managed to gain about 300 words today, but I need another 1000 to really feel comfortable. I can't keep slacking on this thing or it isn't going to get done. Yes, I'm stressing about it. I don't' think the story is that good at all, but you work with what you're given.
I'm sending a notice to my doctor today about the pain. None of the medicines are working except the prednisone and I can't take that all the time. I've had five courses in the last year. That's bad.
Still, I'm just happy to get any writing done, even bad writing. There has to be something good in there somewhere. Besides, if I can write 50,000 words in 30 days I surely can write 10,000 in 60... right?
