Some topics covered this week:

  • I have done NOTHING for NaNoWriMo this week and I feel such a failure. Maybe this weekend. I only have this weekend left as I am travelling at the end of the month. I think this may be beyond my capability this year. 😦
  • My specific type of sciatica was diagnosed this week so I can finally research the correct exercises and get that moving. My back is better but I’m still dealing with a lot of pain. Hopefully the stretching will help that.
  • I did not know that raisins are toxic to dogs and cats. Thanks to a friend’s experience (one I hope she never has to go through again) I understand how deadly this innocent-looking fruit can be. I’m glad I made her week bright again by giving her a fountain pen on Fountain Pen Day.

Happy writing everyone!
