Dragon Naturally Speaking
The orthopedic surgeon is a nice guy but I hope our relationship will be a short one, limited to low-key, relatively painless weekly checkups. I would rather not proceed to an encounter with his surgical skills. In other words, I hope tomorrow’s X-rays will show that the broken bone in my shoulder isn’t shifting but will heal properly without intervention.
I can’t stop working, though. I have a bazillion little chores to accomplish before the launch of When Sparrows Fall in May. Meanwhile, a Lovely New Story has taken up residence in my head and wants attention, and a Fractious Older Story demands revisions. I’m typing only with my right hand, but that still produces new aches in my supposedly motionless left shoulder.
I’m paranoid about those aches–What if they mean stuff is moving around in there?–so I ordered Dragon Naturally Speaking 11 dictation software this morning. Depending on who you talk to, it’s either a lifesaver that miraculously transforms spoken words to a Word file, or it’s a fiendish frustration from the depths of hell. I’ll let you know how it goes.
