Things are good. On this Tuesday past, the editor emailed me to tell me that they're going to be sending me a contract. I've been working on this proposal for over 3 years. I almost quit writing it several times. If all goes according to plan, I'll finish the book by November and it will be published the following November. Of course things might not go according to plan, but for right now, I'm just going to feel cheerful.
Guess what else? A good pal suggested that the brace might have been part of my healing problem with the ankle. Every time I would transition from the hideous boot to the brace, I'd have quite a bit of pain when I walked. I kept returning to the boot thinking that my foot wasn't healing correctly. My pal suggested that the brace might have been irritating my ligaments. Come to find out, my doctor agreed and now I'm in a little compression sleeve number and I'm feeling tons better. Boot be gone! I'm on the up and up people! Glory be.
