First Chemo, and a some vague thoughts on writing
Well, Lana had her first chemo treatment yesterday. It was a long day, from about 8:20 to 2:00 in the chair with infusions of various medications running into her body. She handled it like a trooper. We took along my laptop and she was even able to get online with it and do a little facebooking as a distraction. She had some weird feelings in her body later but so far not a lot of problems. I understand the worst often hits after a couple of times. She also has to go back today for a half hour for another infusion of some med to counteract the nausea effects of the first meds.
I actually did some 'thinking' about writing yesterday evening, for the first time in quite a while. Mostly I was thinking about the cover to Harmland, and deciding I needed to add a subtitle to make sure folks knew it was short stories rather than a novel. Also, in the first version I posted, a couple of folks thought the "eyes" down in the left hand corner were headlights, so I wondered about adding another pair of eyes, or two, to dispel that possibility. I also enlarged the font size of my name and the title, and moved the title in a bit, which several people suggested. Anyway, I've copied the new mock-up below. It's still not completed, of course, but let me know if you see problems. I'm not really happy with the subtitle of "stories," but haven't come up with anything else yet.
