The Attack of Count Neck-Crink


It's a mystery to me.  My neck is perfectly fine, I get in bed, I fall asleep, I wake up--BAM!  I can't move.  I mean, I could move if I wanted, but only if I want to be in agony.  And don't even think about looking to the left, or right.  Did I sleep-walk around my room and do some midnight head-banging?  Did I drift in a dreamlike state to my car and run it into a brick wall? What on earth happened in the night between laying down and waking up that caused my neck muscles to do a salsa, foxtrot and merengue?!  Needless to say, I spent most of today in bed--the first part unable to lay down, and the second unable to sit up.  In fact I searched in vein for a comfortable pain-free position.  I have yet to find it even as I type this.  I at least got some rough sketches done which you'll find posted here.  More sketches for this manuscript that I intend to send off in all it's imperfect glory.  I can't wait for perfect anymore--perfect never comes, and I have to keep reminding myself of that.  :-)

And p.s. the pigs are unrelated to my story.  Pigs are always showing up uninvited in my drawings--they sure have their nerve!

Do you think the pigs have gotten lost from their own story? Or are they just anxious for storytime?

Hope your neck is better soon!

This happens to me too Paige.. I don't know why really. I think is because I have really bad posture and it might reflect the next day or something.. who knows..
Hope you are feeling better!
