Stage 4

Yep. It’s official. The cancer is Stage 4. We got most of my results back from the biopsy yesterday. But it is “treatable.” If all goes well, I start chemo on the 27th. If some of the test results come back wonky, we will have to go to Plan B. Which will probably still be chemo, just a different kind.

So the focus is back on finishing my many series. The website overhaul is pretty much finished, so back to the writing. And tonight is game night, which is a good way to take my mind off of things.

Website clean-up

I’ve been working on streamlining my website a little more. I am happy with how the new bibliography pages have turned out. It was a lot of work, but I was too tired after the lung biopsy to write, so I tried to do something at least a little bit constructive. Not sure how I had the energy to update all my pages, but it is done. Now, off to write…

Writer’s Open Challenge

I think there’s at least four of us so far that have taken up the challenge. So here’s a good post to check in on if you’re one of those four or if you’re new here and want to join. (There is no set time frame, so join up at any time you wish!)

I did not get anywhere near what I wanted to get done this first week. But having a ton of doctor appointments and a lung biopsy had a lot to do with that. I was able to get a little bit of writing done almost every day, and I was able to get a few short story collections put together so that I have something publishing every month through May (I posted them for pre-order.) I was hoping that would take some pressure off and help me feel like I’m still accomplishing something, even if starting chemo makes me feel like crap.

But let’s have everyone sound off. Hopefully you all had a better week than I did. But life happens and slow weeks happen. So don’t let one get you down.

Remember, the challenge is whatever works for you. Just get to writing!
