Forgive us for the long delay between blog posts. It’s been a busy, difficult few months. We ended November on a high note, pleased with the material we wrote during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). Feeling accomplished having written every day for the month of November, we decided to take a few weeks off to catch up on things around the house. We never did get back to writing.
The holidays are always busy, and between last minute guests, parties, and a few major health issues, this year was no exception. Our mom, Nancy, took a fall at her house. No one thought much of it until a few days later, she started having her legs give out on her. After a stay at the hospital, it was discovered that she has major spinal issues (on top of her old spinal issues, including five back surgeries). This time the problem lies in her neck. She will be going in for spinal surgery this Thursday. We’ve been spending the time getting things ready, so that she can go into the hospital with her mind at ease that things will be taken care of at home. Recovery will take 6 to 8 months and then she will likely face a second spinal surgery.
When you are part of a writing team, it’s hard to make progress when your partners are down or unavailable. Please be patient with us as we navigate this difficult period. Send some good vibes to Nancy and wish her luck. We just want to get her stabilized and as pain-free as possible.
We might get some writing done or we might not. We’ll make no promises but we’ll keep our good intentions. As always, thanks for sticking with us.
Anne, Nancy, and Eric
