Every occupation has its associated injuries. Miners, firemen, nurses etc, but writers? Apparently so. There I was quite happily typing in my research notes, assembling them into useful groups, and slotting them into the structural plan, when I felt a wee twinge in my back. It grew gradually worse and then my fingertips started tingling. The next morning, pain, excrutiating pain through my shoulder and down my arm and wrist! Now I’m waiting for a physiotherapy appointment while munching painkillers like sweeties and not writing. So, how do you write when you can’t? You read! Making progress is what counts, and I will get back to the typing soon enough. I’m stalled on 15,000 words, about 10,000 of which are any good, and my shoulder is really sair, but the project is still on track.
