Sunday Mourning

Status of current project:


Word Count thus far: 32772

Page Count thus far: 102 pages

Goal for this week: 120 pages

As anyone who can do basic math can tell, I have fallen a bit behind on my five page per week goal. I was cooking along pretty well until about 3-4 weeks ago when I was having all that trouble sleeping. What I finally figured out was that I had wrenched my upper back and the muscle spasm was keeping me from sleeping effectively which in turn was keeping my back from getting better. I vicious circle indeed. Well, I am one week out from my first ever therapeutic massage which has seriously improved my back and neck pain, not to mention my sleep and general outlook on life.

In addition, this past week was our first week in the new clinic. We are on the fourth floor of the new medical office building at Mercy Hospital in Charlotte. The clinic is beautiful. Some people are having some trouble finding it, which is making our clinics run a bit late, plus things aren’t running quite as smoothly since everything is new. Even good change is stressful. That being said, I love the new clinic and look forward to working there for many years to come

In short, this is my way of documenting to myself more than anyone that I am behind and that I need to get back on the horse. When you’re not sleeping, I guess, there’s just not a lot of water ii the well, no matter how much you want to drink. It’s not writer’s block – as I know what’s happening next in the story – I think it’s more like writer’s fatigue (or just general fatigue).  🙂

I hope that by the next time you read this blog the differential between goal and written pages is less than 18, but we’ll see. Now, where was I…
