Tomorrow I begin radiation treatment. Every day for six weeks. UGH. Oh yeah, also low-dose chemo. Not the type of cocktail I had in mind.
Doctor says this will be my full-time job. Radiation will only be about 20-30 minutes. This is a writer's dream, actually. The rest of my day will be reading, tea, rest, repeat.
During the past few months, I've been busy sharpening up manuscripts and cover letters to send out into the world. Terrifying. If you are new to the submission process, let me tell you it takes a lot of research! Click here for helpful tips by children's author Tara Lazar.
For now, I will give my mind a break and slip into some good books. I'm currently reading Ready Player One and hope to see the movie this weekend with the kids if I'm up for it.
