So now that I'm on disability and not working, somehow I'm busier than ever. Friends are visiting at various times. The house needs to be further cleaned out. Stuff to go to Goodwill, to Schoolhousesupplies.org, to Free Geek. Disability paperwork. Financial planning paperwork. Emails with my agent and with editors. A few more trips while I'm still able to travel. Lots of time in the bathroom, during which none of the rest of this gets done. Parenting.

Everything but writing. That part of my brain seems to be shut down. Some combination of the Regorafenib and stress.

Or course, that's why I'm on disability now. Because it's harder and harder to work. I just hate to see it.

Meanwhile, busy, busy, busy.

I am at your log for the first time even thought I am a faithful follower of your books, especially 'Green'. After finally getting my hands on 'Mainspring' earlier that month I was eager to read everything else you wrote. Thank you for sharing your imagination with us.
You see I am also on disability. 6 years ago I was diagnosed HIV+, and the meds are rough. I tell this not for sympathy or pity, but so you understand the gift you've given me and others. I spend most of my time reading. I feel I've had a chance to live lifetimes in other peoples imaginings and yours Sir have been more than a pleasure to revel in so far. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Of the thousands of books I have read, only a few authors have left me wishing I could share back with them just how much theirs books have meant to me, I am glad the first chance to do so came with seeing your blog.
wishing you all the best,
Kelly-Charmaine Flanagan
