In 2014 writer in Languedoc is having problems already. Writing plans are delayed.
On December 14th a car hit me from behind and knocked me flying. I don’t remember falling. That part of the experience is a complete blank. I remember my head bouncing on concrete and I ended up lying on my right side cradling my left wrist. Both my head and wrist were hurting like crazy. I knew I was in trouble and lay very still.
Christmas and New Year were non events for me. I was out of it much of the time, spaced on painkillers and sleeping my way through nightmares. But here I am today, typing with one hand a little at a time. My wrist/arm is broken in 2 places. I have a full arm cast which gets in the way and is very heavy. I can’t sit at my keyboard for long because I can’t get in a comfortable position.
Be careful what you wish for
Do you remember my post from the Wicked Stepmother where I planned a crafty coup for time off from kitchen duties?
Oh, how I wished for a break from all that cooking.
Well, look what happened!
A break in two places.
I won’t be able to peel a potato for months.
But I’m a writer. Somewhere I’ll get a story out of it.
