I have been wanting to do this forever. Several years ago I got one done in the cartilage on the other side. I was with my favorite cousin, and she had one done too, and I have always loved it. But it hurt, oh my yes it hurt, not so much at the time but when trying to sleep on it.
But what better time to go for it than when I've vowed to be brave?! - and oh yeah, I finished the final edits on GARDEN OF STONES today, so I had something to celebrate. (Maybe my editor Erika Imranyi will run out and get hers done too, since she worked as hard on these revisions as I did.)
