So there I was, writing happily. And there was the tendinitis, remaining pleasantly dormant. Until today, when it hit me so hard I could barely even hold a cup in my hand. Seeing as how I have to type all day at work, I decided to set Camp NaNoWriMo aside. Does it suck? It really does. But I am sitting here typing with one hand. Yay excuses!
At the very least, I wrote more in 16 days than I have in over a year. I wrote: 27,537. And! I know that I am capable of writing 50,000 words in a month mentally if not physically. I have suffered from severe tendinitis in my left arm and hand for years now, including a bit of nerve damage in my elbow on the same arm. Essentially, according to the doctor, any repetitive movement is bad. And typing is bad. But my job involves typing, so I type! I just need to go to physiotherapy. Which I will do soon, once the pain lessens! Yay whining!
Either way, now you all know my epic fail. My hope is that everyone else participating wins just as epically. Good luck, people!
