holy shit

Last night I was like, nah, you're seeing things, wishful thinking, etc, but after treatment #2? The cords really ARE shrinking, dramatically so.

"Stops progressing" would have been a good outcome. Actual reversal happens in a minority of cases, almost always in patients who treat it very early. I'm SO FUCKING GLAD I insisted on going as aggressive as possible. Even if I wind up with more chronic pain out of it, I'll keep use of my hands for a fuck of a lot longer, thank ANYTHING THAT WAS LISTENING

First dose of radiation done, out of five (once per day this week). Aside from 20 minutes of "shitting cockgoblin fuckmuppet" pain levels just now, which did die down to just a slightly elevated from normal "ow ow ow ow ow", it was fairly uneventful! Holding the position required for the treatment is worse than the actual treatment, which is basically "the machine goes click whirr for 45 seconds".

So curious to see what happens in six weeks. The way this works, you see, is by activating all the dormant spots so the second round can nuke them in 12 weeks...

Writing in a New Fandom

I've had a bit of a slow start to the Rough Trade Writing Challenge this week. It was a bit unexpected that writing in a new fandom would slow down my process significantly. Having struggled a bit this week, I realized that 1) I'm writing a Stargate Atlnatis Post-Season 5 story, so I don't have the earlier part of the series to work with event wise and 2) I'm also writing an original main character, as well as secondary characters with quite a bit of world building since there's a limited amount of information on the Ancients/Alterans and in turn Sateda in canon.

The first two initial scenes took quite a bit of my allocated writing time this week to get sorted, but the rhythm and pace of the story and characterizations are smoothing themselves out. My writing speed should finally start picking up now that I have my introductory bits sorted out. As usual, there is humor in my writing (at least when it comes to John and Rodney), which seems to be almost involuntary on my part. Overall, I'm happy with the start of the piece. 

Even with my snails pace (500 words/hour if it's going well), I should still be done with the first episode of The Descendant by the due date of July 14th.
