Why my Medium Stories May be Shorter for a While

No I don't often post anything that would be considered personal unfortunately yesterday I managed to have the worst horseback riding accident I've had since college.

The primary casualty of this accident was my right hand. I have broken my right fifth metacarpal bone. This is very annoying, slightly painful and results in the fact thatall of my work has been done by dictation.

Anyone who has attempted to use automatic dictation knows it doesn't always work. I was tempted to leave in some of the multiple errors in this article.

So everything I write has to be dictated, and then I have to go through through it with one hand and fix all the problems the dictation software introduced.

Obviously I can't not work for 6 to 8 weeks, so I am going to be doing my level best with dictation software and one hand. Just don't be surprised if some of my stories are a little shorter and if there are a few more typos than normal.

I have an appointment with the hand doctor next week. He will hopefully be able to give me a more accurate prognosis as to whether I need surgery (please no) and how long I might take to recover. In the interim I will be doing my best.

By the way, what I broke was the part of my pinky finger that is inside my hand. Zero out of 10 do not recommend.
