That's sorta what I said the other night when I fell off a ladder (while painting) and cracked the bone in my right heel.

So now I'm on crutches. Most of the pain is gone, unless I try to stand with any weight whatsoever on my right leg. I don't. I also now own my very own pair of crutches. This is the first bone I have ever broken/cracked (that I know of...longer story). How are you guys doing? Broken any bones lately?

Two nice things have come out of this, however. First, there are all sorts of chores I don't have to deal with at the moment. Whoopee! Second, and more seriously, I've gotten quite a bit of reading done in the last few days. Reading is the only thing that this bone crack hasn't affected negatively so far.

I finished two books. First was Steven Krug's Don't Make Me Think. I liked it a lot. It gave me some really good ideas for, at the very least, improving this blog. I highly recommend it. The second was Goldsberry's The Writer's Book of Wisdom: 101 Rules for Mastering Your Craft. I enjoyed it and it seemed to have some good advice. I think this book is more directled at novelists than others, but to a very novice writer a lot of the advice made sense. If you've got a few extra bucks, go ahead and pick it up. It is pretty cheap and is a very fast read.

I bought a new book this last Friday called Lucifer's Hammer. I'm 437 pages out of 494 done. Great book so far. It is a fiction book, so if you need some fiction, pick it up. I got it for $10 at Half Price Books. Thanks for the recommendation, Edward!
