My apologies for not writing an entry before today, but this week has been busy. At the building, I spent every day working on the drainage ditch. My body is bruised, scraped, sore, and battered, but the majority of the labor is complete. Unfortunately, all of the digging has inflamed the carpal tunnel in my right hand. I’ve dealt with this on and off for a couple of years, but this round is by far the worst. I spent all day yesterday and so far today resting my arm as much as possible to heal it. I hate feeling incapacitated in any manner, but right now I can’t even make a fist with my right hand.
In other news, I got the manuscript for book three back from Philip on Thursday, and from what I’ve seen so far, he did an excellent job. I’m going to write another entry soon just about the edits he did for me. I can’t wait to dive into the manuscript and polish it. I’m ready for the book to be out there and read, and I know that many of my readers are ready for it. I apologize for how long it has taken for me to get this one out, hopefully, it will have been worth the wait because I believe this book is the best so far. There’s a punch to it that’s stronger than the first two, in part from the life experiences that have delayed it but also from my growth as a novelist.
That’s all for now. Keep checking for more details about book three and more updates on the farm.
