One week with the new and improved eyeballs. Although, despite being able to see without my glasses or contacts it isn't a complete cake walk. I'd be lying if I said the healing process was fun. It's actually a bit of a pain in the posterior because you want everything to be perfect when you wake up the next day. For some lucky people, it is. For the rest of us, we have to go through the process.
My left eye vision is sharp and clear. But because I had dry eyes before the surgery, the side effect of dry eye after the surgery is a little more pronounced for me, especially in the right eye, which is almost sharp and clear but the dryness keeps it from being completely so. Which is nothing worrisome and actually par for the course after surgery. It's just annoying as the dryness when it flares up is a tad uncomfortable. But I have my bottle of Refresh Tears which makes it relatively better. The dryness more pronounced when I'm staring at the computer for awhile or in air conditioning. Which is a good description of my entire workday and worst of all - my pod is directly under an AC vent.
Regardless, it is improving bit by bit each day. I go today to get first vision check to see where things stand so far. I just keep reminding myself healing is a process, not something that happens overnight, and to be patient.
On the writing front - Brimstone is booming along. I found another spot where I can cut one scene and blend its elements into another to tighten things up and save on the word count. I have some good news regarding Brimstone as well, but I want to wait to get official word before making any big proclamations. Either way, so far things are on track I think to finish by end of the month, possibly sooner.
Also, I agreed to be a regular blogger over at Miss Make A Movie. That will begin in November or December. I'll keep you posted.
NaNoWriMo is fast approaching. If anyone else out there is partaking in the madness feel free to add me to your buddies list. I'm under lochbriar. I have my story picked out that I am going to work on and I'm really excited about that, but I can't come up with a working title or the name of the fictional town where it takes place. So I'm going to wrack your brains. The story has a redemption theme, takes place in the old west and the hero is a reluctant gunslinger with a reputation he doesn't particularly want. Circumstances regarding his gunslinger past bring him to the Unnamed Town where he meets our independent heroine with trust issues.
So - anyone have any ideas for the town name or working title? Throw them at me.
