As a Multiple Sclerosis patient, it has become necessary for me to reinvent myself. I have ... and continue to ... refuse to lie down and die, or in this case, follow the normally prescribed drugs and treatments that do nothing to defeat my disease. I am not only surviving by pursuing alternatives, I am thriving. I do the things specialists told me I would never be able to do. I walk and hope to one day even run regularly. I retain my cognitive and creative abilities for the pleasure of my readers. Although you may never see me on my daily walk, you are welcome to read my novel(s) and in doing so, come to ask yourself, "How can the 'out of the box' protocol she has followed, help my loved one with an autoimmune disease like Multiple Sclerosis?"
Monday I managed 1616 words with very little editing.
Tuesday I edited and wrote 1420 new words.
Wednesday I accomplished 1247 words without opening the dictionary although the internet reasearch, library files sent in the past by a friend, and the thesaurus each got a workout and the notes taken are more than 2 pages taking up 3 hours plus the writing hours. Although daily word count is dropping, the total words in the manuscript are at 8065.
Goal for tomorrow ---sandwich in more research between family and living life (the mundane stuff like errands, delivering and picking up children, caring for the recovering patient, etc.)
Will also be responding to readers at three different blogs.
