I'm starting to feel better, so I think I'll be able to revive the blog by this weekend. In case anyone's wondering what the heck's been up, it's basically been my neck. Hey, that rhymes,...kind of...
But seriously, I've been suffering from head and neck pain for several months. It was getting so bad that I could not find a comfortable way to work on the computer for more than 5 minutes or so without suffering from headaches and/or neck pain. A lot of my issues are exacerbated because I'm on the computer for 8+ hours every day. And I write on my own time, too, you know.
But I have been going through intense physical therapy so I can get back to work and writing. But there's no magic bullet. And I guess like a lot of physical therapy, there's no steady improvement - there's ups and downs and backsliding and frustration. I'm also having to change almost everything about how I go about my day: and how I stand, how I sit, how I walk, how I read, how I think about things - because it all affects our bodies in one way or another. One by one, we are trying to tackle everything I have been doing wrong for the past 50+ years. Oh yeah, and I'm getting new glasses. I have to do so many exercises now that I told my physical therapist "stop - I can't remember all of these!"
But as she told me, at least we're tackling it. She said that if I didn't do something I would have to retire, and that scared the hell out of me. (Not that I don't like the idea of retiring, but it's a little too early for that!)
This is about all I can do for now. I'll do something over the weekend, promise. There's so much to write about, like PulpFest and so many other events and goings on. I'm also in the middle of proofing the new RIDING THE PULP TRAIL. In addition, this movie is coming out tomorrow:
Everyone have a good weekend!
