ozarque figure

Monday; the new novel...

The new novel is going well. I'm writing it all in longhand right now, hoping that will mean the results are better because it slows me down so much.

I think that the series of catastrophes that fell on me in 2009 have left a lasting trauma that means it may be a long time before I'm able to work as quickly as I used to. I'm just not as strong as I used to be, and I suspect that it may take me a long time to recover from the damage. I don't mean to whine, but I do want to be clear about this. And having severe diverticulitis isn't helping any; it's made me housebound.
