Made some more progress on Pinion yesterday. Not today. Too distracted by cancer worries, could not focus to write, and I had company for a while this evening, thanks to the generosity of a friend who came with videos and walnuts to keep me distracted from myself. Luckily, calendula_witch got a lot done on her editorial review of Pinion, so the book progresses. And another key first reader has given me the last of her valuable feedback.

Tomorrow I'm going to the coffee house. We'll see how well-focused I can manage to be. Wednesday I go on the pre-colonoscopy drug course, and calendula_witch arrives that evening, so writing much less likely that day.

sorry you're feeling so frazzled with it all -- but it'll be past soon and everything will be just fine very soon. Okay, not soon enough, but soon.

Jay, I just wanted to wish you all the best for the tests. We're thinking of you over here in Blighty. Hang in there. And focus on the celebration when everything comes back clean as a whistle.

Sending good thoughts your way. Be calm. It will do you only good, no matter the outcome.
