Fun fact, I had bleeding ulcers from the age of 18 to the ripe old age of 24. Pretty exciting. Allow me to describe a bleeding ulcer. You experience sharp pains in your upper abdomen, like icicles jabbing a bruise. Once the food in your belly is completely coated in blood and hardens, the little rocks that used to be meals start to make their way through the rest of your digestive track. Imagine a ball of razor blades traveling through your lower intestine and you're pretty much there. Oh, and to make it even more fun, my stomach always hurt worse when I ate, which is actually rare for ulcers. That's me, special. I've had better times.
However, I've been ulcer free for eleven years. Whoo hoo!!!!

I'll be posting snippets from the book next week as well. I'll be using the weekend to decide which tidbits to include. :)
What about you crazy kids? Anything big planned for the week?
PS - I did not forget my promise of more flash fiction. If it's not up this Friday, it will be up post-Tough Girl blog tour.
