Is that Dean Koontz book yours (writing popular fiction)? That goes for 300 dollars. I remember selling mine for 80 when I had it. I thought the advice was basic at the time. It's hyped by collectors I am convinced by own my experience.
Yes, it is. I bought it from...can't remember if it was Alibris, maybe? A little while ago now. I agree about it being somewhat basic but sometimes that's what I need. The book that's beside it, Story (McKee) is much more in-depth.

It’s too early to tell, I’m awake but not up yet. Enjoying the quiet and pain free.
Yesterday though, was a banner day! Began and finished some overdue chores early, completed a poem I’d been working on for a week thinking it needed to be submitted today.....it’s next Monday, and... was delighted, grateful and surprised I wasn’t sore, as I had fallen on my right side the day before. Yup, fell like a ton of pavers. Nothing broken. A couple hours afterwards, I did a light workout as to not tighten up, I think that helped... and 600 mgs of Ibuprofen. Yea, so waking up yesterday was a nice surprise like today, but then, I haven’t tried to stand up yet either, here goes....

Just finished with edit #6 of Redemption, and wanted to go for a ride on my motorcycle... but then I looked outside... damn it, it's snowing.

Maybe because you fell hard, it was putting my hand out to save myself dislocated my arm, and like someone said it is a classic way yo break a wrist. I have an appointment with the physio today to see about having the sling off. YAY !!

We got the outside plants (perennials and a couple annual pots) done today. A new azalea, lots of flox, regular and creeping, and some I forget the names of stuck in the side and back beds. I also got all of my solar light yard art and my metal pelican out. I missed my flamingos.

The weekend knocked me out of writing again (I need to come up with some sort of strategy for that) and I'm finally on Tuesday getting back to forcing myself into writing a few random bits. Yesterday was recovery from being with my narcissistic mother, digging into resources for how to handle relationships with narcissistic people.

The menu for this evening. Salmon, roasted asparagus, cauliflower au gratin, and possibly these macaroon brownies that I found a recipe for.

A friend gave me duck eggs over the weekend. Anyone familiar with using these and any favorite recipes?

Sorry to hear about your mother - that can be tough. Hang on, you'll figure it out.

Back in the 80's I was working horrendous hours designing PC's and workstations for Olivetti. I had a horrible boss that screamed at everyone and put us all under tremendous pressure. Although he's not like your narcissistic mother, I learned to compartmentalize with him and not really care about his ranting and raving. If he made unreasonable demands, I'd just say no. He would go ballistic, and I'd just lean back and watch - his crazy upset was in HIM, not me. I guess what I'm saying is that difficult people are easier to deal with you you stop caring about their drama.
