Cataract surgery on my right eye last Tuesday gave me a reasonable excuse for not doing much writing last week. Just did a tiny bit every day so I can hopefully look back on this year and say: well at least I did a bit of writing every day. I am hopeful that my output will really increase from now.
I see the ophthalmologist again tomorrow for the second and last test on my right eye. If it follows the same procedure as last time, I will have an eye chart reading test as part of it. My left eye is now 20/20 and my right eye should be the same as it has the same strength lens. Unfortunately, 20/20 vision doesn't seem to equate to not needing glasses when reading and using a computer. Oh well.
The real shame about having the surgery now on both eyes is that in a few weeks - touch wood - I won't be able to use bad eyesight as the excuse for all the typos I seem to be making lately - or perhaps with improved eyesight I am only just starting to see them all.
As in the previous two weeks, I have gone and checked Amazon's Kindle bestseller list to check out the prices of ebooks. Thirty were selling for $2, four for $2.25 to $3 and two for free. Interestingly, a lot of the $2 books were classic speculative fiction like Frankenstein and the Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Four of the top ten were selling for $2. Overall, the prices of ebooks on the list are much the same as for the previous two weeks.
Perhaps next week I will finally start a blog post with: I did an amazing amount of writing last week. Yeah and Tony Abbott might raise women to somewhere above sub-human status.
