I don't know why I'm so tired and stressed out. It's probably the weather, which became spring-like on schedule then abruptly got cold again, particularly in the evenings. It hasn't been cold enough to kill plants yet but it has made it hard to get my pond started. I keep having weird anxiety dreams. Last night I dreamed about trying to help another author and her husband at a large event, which was like a dream study in awkwardness and imposter syndrome.

I've got a second arthritis appointment on Thursday, and I hope I can get some medication or shots or something. My hand doesn't hurt much, but it's perpetually stiff, which is just weird.

I'm working on the final proof of Exit Strategy, the fourth and currently final novella in The Murderbot Diaries, and thinking about what I'm going to do next. Return to Dominaria seems to be going well, so that's good.

Oh, and The Murderbot Diaries has sold to a Japanese publisher, which is really cool. That means I'll have had books translated into eleven languages.

Still trying to get my brain around the Nebula and Hugo award nominations.
