Hello my friends! The good news is that I finally finished that huge, stressful work project that has consumed my every waking hour for months now. Whew, what a relief! The bad and good other news is that I’m going back for another eye surgery tomorrow morning. Good because it means I’ll be one step closer to having clear vision again. Bad because I will have about 2-3 weeks of not being able to see well enough to use the computer. So I’ll be offline for a while. On the one hand, I really need the break to relax and unwind after this super-hard first half of the year. On the other hand, it’s rough that my “health vacation” is such that I can’t actually do most of the things I like to do for fun. No writing or blogging or emailing, no reading books, no watching TV or movies, not even any cooking. And forget getting any projects done around the apartment: I won’t be able to see well enough even to do basic cleaning. So basically, it’s phone calls, audiobooks, podcasts, and lots of naps and cuddling with my cat. I’m also hoping to tune my guitar and maybe get back to playing.
I’ve pretty much caught up on my two favorite reading/writing podcasts: Mythcreants and Writing Excuses. (At least, all the episodes that are available on Google podcasts.) Do you have any reading or writing podcasts you’d recommend? I’m especially interested in sci-fi/fantasy/speculative, but fine with branching out, too.
I hope to be back to writing and posting by the end of August. In the meantime, take care, stay healthy, and happy writing!
