NaNoWriMo 2020


All has started! November 1, I’ve written 1719 words.

I’m proud of myself because I had an accident on Friday. My dog was attacked by two cats on our walk. The one tore my hand open and I had to get some stitches, an injection and some antibiotics. My hand feels better but it is still very painful when I move my fingers. I’ve written the whole adventure to fill up my word count which I easily did.

Today November 2, I wrote 1700 words. I described all my vehicles I had during my life time. I’ve written it in Afrikaans. Here is the link.

  1. Oh, dear. I’m so sorry you and your furry family got hurt. Praying you heal up soon. Maybe you could try “Dragon”… it’s a voice rec software for writing. It’s really great. I used it in speech therapy when I was learning to speak again. I’ve also used it for Nano a couple of times. Pain to set up, but once you do it really works well.

    1. Thanks for jour recommendation of “Dragon” I’ll have a look. I’m writing in Afrikaans, do you think it would understand what I’m saying? Was very traumatic experience for both of us. My hand is healing slowly. The nurse put new dressing on yesterday and said it looked good. Thanks again for your kind words.

      1. I’m not sure. Would need to do some research of what languages supported. Online in couple hours and will check.

    1. Ja wat ek okay dakie. Die antibiotika het my maag verrinneweer en die inspuiting het my sommer net mislik laat voel. Vandag voel ek darem baie beter. Dis nog baie seer as ek vingers gebruik. Ek tik maar met my regterhand. Sodra my linkerhand wil saam tik moet ek stop want dit voel nie goed nie. Dankie vir jou belangstelling.

                1. Ek probeer dankie. Party dae raak ek nogal benoud om so op my eie te wees en iets gebeur sommer net. Hier het ons mediese hulp wat ek gebruik. Hul gaan komende Maandag n verpleegster na my huis stuur om my hand weer oop te maak en te verbind. Alles gratis. My dr besoek is ook halfprys gewees. Mediese diens is nogal goed. Mens moet net lank wag met tye om te hoor of hul dit goedkeur as n eis of nie.

                    1. Ek is nou besig om my jare ook teen my te hĂȘ. Eks nie meer so beweeglik soos n paar jaar terug nie. Ek dink juis daaraan om hierdie keer die laaste keer so op my eie plaas te gaan oppas. Veral omdat daar geen telefoonopvangs is nie. My seun het juis die laaste keer gery en kom kyk of als reg is want ek het nie op my laptop gewerk nie . Ons het maar daagliks aanlyn kontak gemaak.

  2. Sjoe, so jammer om te hoor van julle aaklige konfrontasie! ‘n Wond deur ‘n kat gemaak is glad nie speletjies nie, ek is bly jy het ordentlike behandeling gekry. Beterskap en sterkte met die skryf!

    1. Dankie Frannie dit was nou regtig n hengse skok vir my en Trompie gewees. Ek het gedink die kat kan Trompie doodbyt, veral omdat dit twee was. My han voel darem beter maar dis baie seer en gevoelig. Sal sekere fisio op einde ook moet kry want dis n diep wond wat kat gekrap het.

        1. Ek het Trompie netso jammer gekry. Hy het nie eers die katte gesien nie. Jong, die skryf hou my gedagtes besig. Gebruik net een vinger om te tik! Sal my nie laat onder kry nie. Hoop jul het nie teveel probleme daar by julle met die verkiesing saam nie. Klink maar soos n nagmerrie.

            1. Mooi man. Het gisteraand gesit en kyk na die uitslae en ou Trump se mal idees. Dit gaan darem vandag baie beter. Gister my hand laat herverbind en verpleegster sĂȘ dit lyk goed vir wat dit ook beteken, haha. Net bly dit voel nie meer so seer nie. Geniet jou rustigheid.

  3. OMC Ineke, is Trompie okay? What were they thinking! I think they need some lessons from da Binky. Powerful Healing Pawkisses for a Happy Week aheadđŸŸđŸ˜œđŸ’ž

    1. Thanks Binky I think they went off the rail somewhere. Both ginger cats. First one grabbed me around my neck. Mum chased it away. then it turned around and grabbed me again around my neck. The cats mum pulled it away and then the second cat attacked from the back, grabbing me and wanting to bite me. That’s when mum’s hand was in the way and the cat ripped mum’s hand open. Blood everywhere. Lucky I still had a lot of fur/hair otherwise I would have got hurt too. I feel sorry for mum because her hand hurts a lot. Lucky it’s her left hand and not her right one. Anyway, it’s much better today(Monday). Some big wet licks and high five to you and Grams too.

      1. I think I must rather write on my own and not pressure myself; recovering from multiple CVAs is surely no kiddies’ picnic

          1. Some days, I simply cannot write at all and I shouldn’t be forcing stroke recovery the way I did before, causing just more trouble.

              1. Will do, trying to find the balance between too little and too much challenge, but an uncalled-for confrontation had put me under severe stress and that had set back my recuperation with quite a bit. Even graduates think that a stroke is cured within a few weeks. It may take decades, though, if at all.

                  1. Someone placed undue stress on me and that had put me in a flat spin for the past three or four weeks; I wanted to rather die but finally scraped my pieces of the sidewalk and pasted some of it together again. One;s friends can be so bloody cruel
