Let Me Off This Rollercoaster - Rock, Paper, Puppies!


Oct. 30th, 2009 10:28 am Let Me Off This Rollercoaster

Wow, it's been awhile. And what a while it's been. The short version (the three main points) is that I fell and seriously injured my arm & hand; I'm recovering slowly with lots of doctor visits, therapy appointments and all that jazz; and the kicker – I was laid off from my job as editor. *out of the blue and not because I missed any work or deadlines*

Yes, I was laid off. Now everyone who knows all that I did and the quality of my work are shocked. I can't count the number of times I've heard people say "But what is XXX going to do without you?" Obviously, XXX doesn't care. After almost 10 years, they let the door hit me in the proverbial rear. *wham bam no thank you ma'am*

But, maybe this is the best thing for my own writing. Still don't make it any easier. *BIG sigh*

Despite all of this hand stuff, I've decided to do Nano again. Might as well, since the job market here is deader than the proverbial doornail. I have an exciting project to work on, and I'm ready to go!

Who else is in for NanoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month, this year? My username there is the same as here – myscribe. :)

Current Location: Not AT Work
Current Mood: indescribableindescribable
Current Music: Fish Tank Bubbles
