Added PRIDE’S CHILDREN – Chapter 14, Scene 11

This week’s post is the end of Chapter 14 (Scene 11, 1.14.11). Phew. Finally. What is she thinking you ask?

I went on a little hike! In the mountains of PA. Ok – not a real hike, but at least 15 minutes of walking up and down in the hills around a cabin community. The freedom of walking is unbelievable – in previous years I’ve sat and chatted with the other stationary people in the lawn chairs, but this year I stood up and walked. The gratitude quotient is way up there.

I paid for it that night: needed extra calcium, magnesium, and a muscle relaxant to tackle the unbelievable cramps in my legs – but who cares – I walked. The next day wasn’t bad, and I’ve done a bit more walking since with no major consequences. I’ve ramped up the isometric exercises I located on the internet for all kinds of foot and leg muscles – I think I just caught my body by surprise. Be cautious. Build up. Don’t exhaust self. But I’m going to do this – and the freedom is exhilarating.

The website design, cover, formatting, and, of course, writing, is all on course – I’m just very slow, guys. No huhu, as Heinlein has a character say in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.

And here is this week’s quote (thanks,

17.3 coming along fine. Stressful. But the harder they are to write, the better they come out.

    Be cautious. Build up. Don’t exhaust self.

    Yes, definitely. This is where I am. After dealing with a bunch of illness, then my mom’s hospitalization, then more illness (brought on by my exhaustion), I haven’t exercised in months. If I don’t ramp up gradually, I’ll get injured (I seem to injure easily), and then I’ll miss even more weeks of exercise. Prudent and gradual are the watch words.
