Why do I blog?

One of the great things about blogging is that you can use it to keep track of progress on your goals. In doing so, you may inspire others.

I hope my posts aren’t full of nonsense and blathering. I hope when people read about my journey as a writer and a human that something strikes a chord with them. Maybe they’ll be inspired to edit that manuscript that’s collecting dust and go on to inspire others. Maybe they’ll find the courage to keep fighting their demons.

We all have challenges.

I had a CT scan on Monday. Boy does iodine feel weird when they inject it. She told me I would feel like I was peeing myself. I decided to use the washroom beforehand to ensure I wouldn’t actually pee myself despite her assurance that no one had ever actually done so. The warm feeling was interesting. I felt blanketed in warmth from the inside. It began in my tummy and radiated outward. Weird. I didn’t feel like I had to pee or like I had a metal taste in my mouth, just that everything was very warm. Then I needed a moment after the test was done to calm down. I find it odd they need to put an i.v. in to inject the iodine. I also find a lot of medical tests weird in general. It felt like I was in “fight” mode. Is it really best to test someone while in fight/flight mode?

I have some book news! I’ve hired a cover designer and I’m super excited about it!!!

I’m puttering with a short horror piece. The working title is Northern Horror.

I want to thank everyone who follows my blog and twitter feed. Hopefully you’ll have some of my books to read soon.

  1. I had a CT scan a couple years ago and you are right about that warm feeling. Kind of a good feeling but kind of disconcerting too. I hope your results are good. Good luck with your cover design and with the rest of your writing.


  2. Perhaps we go into that fight mode because such a procedure very much tests our sense of danger and mortality. Which we can translate into our writing, yes? I’m looking forward to that cover reveal — and have a good week writing!


  3. I haven’t experienced IV iodine yet, but I’m sure that may come to me in the future. 🙂 I hope your CT scan helps with a diagnosis and treatment!
    Congratulations on getting a cover artist! I look forward to seeing what you get! And best of luck on Northern Horror!


    • I hope so too. They called me to book a follow up the day after I had the test, which is rather quick I think. Whatever is going on, I will deal with it and keep trucking along. I hope dialysis goes well for you!

      I’m looking forward to seeing a cover too. I hope it doesn’t take too long to finish getting the book ready for publication. Then it’s the formatting and learning about things like IngramSpark, Smashwords, etc.
