Many thanks to everyone for positive thoughts and comments. Nothing definite from the specialist. I have to wait for biopsy results. For myself and my son. Who just went for a checkup.
Waiting is the worst.
What I planned for this year was reviews of books and movies I love. Completely personal. I still hope to get there.
I have actually been writing more regularly. I printed out one of my more complete books and have been editing the hard copy. It’s working much better for me. The book I did have published was in the 1990’s and my first draft was longhand and then typed out twice on a manual typewriter. What can I say? Those were the days. Sending hard copy submissions to publishers – which cost a packet – and multiple submissions were frowned upon. So send and wait. Send and wait. Checking the information in a ten year old copy of ‘The Writers and Artists Yearbook’. One of the members of our writers’ group brought in a new copy and was nearly mobbed. No online buying and massively unhelpful local shops. It didn’t help living in the back of beyond either.
