Day 2 of NaNo

I felt a little better today than I did yesterday. The swelling has gone on the left hand side of my face and as of this evening, the right hand side is on its way down. I rested lots today and as a consquence missed out on a BBQ next door, but that meant the house was quiet and I could get some sleep!

I didn't get a chance to mention yesterday the awesome cream of chicken soup that Dave made for me - which was finished off tonight. I didn't realise how much I would miss meat and how grateful I would be that someone else would cook for me. Sadly I missed out on Moroccan lamb and a hot chickpea salad for dinner. Rather than torture myself, I took Dylan off to bed and read Monsters Inc instead.

I've cancelled the Women's Wisdom Circle for tomorrow because for once in my life I'm being sensible. If tomorrow goes like the last couple of days - I don't start to feel like I am capable of any other than sleep until about 3pm in the afternoon. While I'm slowly feeling my energy and my resilence building, I don't want to destroy it by pushing myself. What I find most amusing about all of this - is that the site of the tooth extraction is honestly the least of my worries - they are both healing well and offering up little pain.

As long as I manage to keep pace with my NaNo word total (currently standing at 4066 words) and keep healing .. that's all I'm really worried about.

And by the way... I've read your "Demon Lover" story, just wondering if I could read it with my students in class.. I've been looking for a fresh ink to share, yours is perfect.

I'm trying to relax - slept last night instead of dragging myself back awake to sit and write a blog post.

I've left the link to Demon Lover on your blog. I'm intrigued to know how you intend to use it with your class and to chat more in the future as I'm keen to forge links with high schools next year (with another project that I'm in the proces of birthing) to use short stories in English programmes.

Hi :0)

As requested I did not publish your 'embarrassing' comment - although please don't be's not the first time that's happened and it sure as hell won't be the last time!

What WOULD have been embarrassing is you slating me, thinking you were leaving the comment for someone else! Luckily that didn't happen. Goodness, can you imagine just how awful that would be? Ooh I don't even want to think about it!

Nice to meet you - and good luck with NaNoWriMo.
