This week has been a pretty great one, writing-wise. The work-in-progress is fitting together nicely, and overall it feels solid and strong. I love it when a novel does that. It's reassuring. Every novel is different, and this one has been more different than any other. It happens. Jujitsu class was great. I got to workout with someone I don't see very often. I also got socked in the eye because I didn't block like I should've. No black eye. That's good. Learned a whole new pile of distinctions. Hopefully, some of them will stick. on the health front, I've been watching what I eat and when, and it's obvious that blood sugar wackiness has been a big part of my problem for the past six months or so. It's been hard to focus--what with the on-going migraine issue. As it turns out, when I keep my blood sugar from crashing I'm a hell of a lot more productive on top of feeling a million times better. Funny how that works. This has also removed most of the pain from the migraines but not the optical fireworks. So, I'm still headed for a neurologist, but at least the pain and fuzziness is managed without the heavy duty meds. It's a step in the right direction.
In other news, NPR has a lovely list of music by women for International Women's Day. I'm loving A-WA, Aziza Brahim, Tritha Electric, and Muthoni the Drummer Queen.
