ISWG: Another Update on my Broken Arm Week 7 and Other Things

I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date! Actually, I was moping about after my daughter, No-No, left Tuesday night to go back to Israel. The Alex J. Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer's Group took a backseat. Sorry, guys.

Onward then...

So today, I'm feeling discouraged because of my own procrastination. The only real writing I've accomplished has been on my blogs ... And text messages and emails.

A few weeks ago several bloggie-buddies suggested dictating my novel. I did. Three days in a row. After I'd press the button to record, my voice box froze as did my brain. So yeah ...

Had thought about doing NaNoWriMo this year since I'm stuck at home. Haven't even begun. I AM SUCH A SLACKER! I'm soooo not happy with myself right now.

But my broken arm is coming along. I'm believing God to be ready for PT by my November 17th appointment. It's still clicking when I move, but not as much. Everyday I get up, I can feel small changes. Can even bend my elbow up and then straight back down again.

Took some pics of my arm after I slipped it out of the sleeve and cuff. A bruised banana.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Hugs and chocolate,
Shelly

  1. It's one big bruise all right.
    Praying that you are healed enough to start PT on time and can put this behind you.

  3. This is seeming to go on for such a long time. I do hope you heal more and more everyday.

    1. The humerus is quite a thick bone. That's why.

  5. Be patient with yourself, Shelly. You'll get there.

    As for dictating your book, you need to get that book I bought. It's not expensive, and the program really does work.

  6. IT looks like you're healing quite well. DO make sure to do your physical therapy... BE AVID about it.... When my wrist was broken, I was very determined to heal 100 per cent. No matter how it hurt, I did everything to the tee... I ended up not needing surgery and I have full extension and movement of my wrist. From what I understand, that is one of the worst breaks to heal properly. Most wrists end up larger and nubbly. It took two years for all the swelling to go down, BUT my wrist is exactly the same as my other. I am so happy I did all the therapy and didn't slack. My therapist was great and she knew I was on it.... I actually was let out a week earlier because I did...

    Take care and be patient.... your body will heal, just keep moving.

  7. Get the arm back to health, and you'll feel better.
    All my love & chocolate hugs!

  8. I'm sorry you voice froze. Dictating using Dragon Naturally Speaking software would give you the chance to write without using your arm.

  9. You poor bruised banana! Wishing healing speeds and you make your 17th appt. Don't worry too much about not writing. Life has to come first and even if words don't get put on the page, lots of ideas and plans can percolate in your brain.

  10. I know all about that procrastination and only on the blog writing. Good that your arm is at least progressing. I think we all need a big boost of ambition.

  13. How is your arm – one month later? Did you get any NaNoWriMo accomplished?

I'm dying to know what you think.
