Which means October's plan is the same as September's - finish that damn book. I don't want to jinx myself, but I think it can be done this time! At 42k, the book feels about half-finished, and it should be a calmer month, so fingers crossed for that. I'm loving the story and the characters, but that just means I'm eager to get it done and out in the world so everyone else can love it too! It sets up some great future stories for the Wild Blood crew, and finishing Slater's Claim means I get to pick whose book to write next... Great motivation for getting my ass in gear!
On the non-writing front, I'm trying to make daily time for physiotherapy/yoga for my poor knackered shoulders and arms. Winter weather tends to set off a lot of my aches and pains, so I'm trying to get ahead of the curve. I had an ultrasound earlier in the year that revealed no tears or inflammation that could be causing my various symptoms, so my only treatment option is strengthening my arms and back and seeing if that eases the pain. I am not one of life's natural exercisers, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. If it sees me through the long, dark, grim, dark, wet, dark British winter without the frustration and agony I usually get, it'll be worth it.
I'm planning to dig out some Halloweeny Point Horrors for some Retro Reading blogs this month if I can. There aren't that many available for the Kindle, so I may have to ~gasp~ buy some paperbacks. So stay tuned for some camp pulp YA horror!
In the meantime, I'm going to leave you with some Tom Petty. I don't often get down in my feelings about celebrities passing, but I love his music. Enjoy, and be kind to each other <3
