The Seventh Annual Slice of Life Story Challenge is complete. It was a fantastic month! While I write daily all year long, there’s something extra-special about writing publicly for 31 consecutive days. I love being part of a writing community: reading other people’s comments and commenting on other bloggers’ writing.
However, I’ve been plagued with arm pain for about two months now. I was supposed to rest my arm (i.e., not sit at the computer) while I was in the wrist brace, but that was nearly impossible since I was running the individual SOLSC!
Unfortunately, the month of March has made the pain worse. In order to sit down and write at the computer for more than five minutes, I have to hook myself up to a TENS unit, wear a padded elbow guard and a wrist brace. And that’s from wrist to trapezius musicles on the right side of my body! I’m being treated for cubital tunnel by an occupational therapist. I have things I have to do at home, like ulnar nerve gliding exercises (don’t ask!).
Something’s gotta give!
And that something is this blog for the next few weeks. I’ll continue blogging once/week in April over at Two Writing Teachers. However, I’m planning to take some time away from the computer so I can focus on other writing projects (which I’ll work on by hand) next month. I’ve got to rest my arm!
