AN OUT-OF-CONTROL PADDLE through the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness left my hands shredded and my right arm tweaked. My career as a hand model was never promising, but this wrist thing is gonna hurt my job performance. Keyboarding and mousing is slow; pen use is accompanied by stabs of pain. I need to rethink my oft-stated dismissal of disability insurance for writers. And I need a stenographer.
It was entirely worth it, of course. Non-injury-related highlights reel to come.
