Bony Fingers

Yes, it's true. I'm writing. My fingers may not be bony yet but they sure do hurt. The wrists, too. It's annoying, for many reasons, but mostly because I've been trying to baby them a bit by stopping writing before I'd like to. Hoping this is just a fleeting annoyance.

Especially since I'm really enjoying writing this book. Vito and I spoke about it last summer, laughed over the trials our heroine finds in her path and imagined all sorts of ridiculous situations for her. So, I'm trying to make those fun conversations come to life. I hear him laughing, so it is a good experience.

So, off to write. Then, jam making. Afterward, garden harvesting...cukes, onions, potatoes, tomatoes and peppers. Still waiting on the eggplant, but I have faith.

What about you? What have you got planned for this summer Monday?

Oh, boy. Can I relate to the hurting fingers. About the only thing that really does work is rest, but that's not too good for the word count.

Hope yours gets better.

I have a wrist brace for just such ocassions. Not fun. I'm off with hubby for 10 days on his business trip - driving through the Kootenays (a gorgeous mountain range here in BC). Have a good one - and rest, my friend!
