a compendium of musings and rants from Alison Beightol, who is old enough to know better.

It's how I roll
So these days I am only mobile by this thing pictured above. Unfortunately mine isn't pink. I'm on this for about 10 more days because of a repair surgery they did on my left foot and ankle. I've been on one of these before back in 2013 but I apparently have gotten worse in manipulating it. I have the bruised toes, run-over things and bumped walls to prove it. My daughter loves it though and can build up some steam on it going up and down our halls. So that's good.
While recovering I have gotten caught up on my to be read pile, my binge watching pile and have gotten plenty of sleep. But no writing.
I hope to do a bunch of writing on the third book in my series and have been doing a ton of research but right now, my characters aren't talking to me. Writing the first two felt super easy to get the first draft because the characters never shut up. I mean it didn't matter where I was or what I was doing either. Now when I have free time, they are silent, which sucks.I'll be patient with them. I might even try making it my NaNoWriMo project. Blood of New Beginnings was one. I cranked out 50,000 words easily. Maybe it will work for this one.
