Well the last few days have been my own little version of hell. I've had migraines or variations on the migraine theme multiple times over the last few days. A month or so ago I had my car broken into. They didn't take money laying around or my two checkbooks in the console. Instead, they took a $25 giftcard and all my migraine meds. Needless to say, I still haven't recovered them.
Luckily, I hhad managed to go by my doctor on Monday and get another prescription for some pain pills.
It might seem a bit odd that I wouldn't just lock myself up in extreme darkness and try to let the world slip by.
Unfortunately, I've found that it just makes things worse. I focus on the darkness, the hot and cold flashes, certain phrases or actions play in a constant loop, only amplifying the pulsing pain in my head. It's not a good deal.
So, instead, I turn to something a bit more concrete.
Most of the time I try to write, but since I've been trying to rework this site, I've spent a good deal of time over the last three days cleaning up some problems I've had with the site's coding or spacing issues. I did not realize how much you can do with CSS. So the site isn't finished yet, but a great deal of my problems have been taken care of.

Thanks to #PitMad, the last two occurred. #PitMad is a crazy flurry of 140 character pitches that devolves into pure chaos. You can literally post every other minute in here with different pitches, though they recommend you attempt a more respectable every hour or more. No agents were interested in my various pitches, but I figured I'd give those Indie Presses a try.
