Firstly I would like to apologise for the lack of blogging over the past week. I have been struck down by the flu, and a fever induced craze that has rendered me absolutely useless in the writing department. Even reading and watching TV is a hazard at the moment, just in case it brings on another throbbing headache to match the aches and pains already ripping through me. So, I guess that I had better get this over and done with as quickly as possible before some sort of verbal atrocity comes tumbling out of my mouth.
On Saturday I was trying to write a modern day fairy tale of sorts… but reached about 150 words and gave up due to my lack of focus. I just couldn’t commit to it to save myself. I ended up chatting to my critters online though, and every once in a while I would have to retreat to the sofa to rest. I eventually pulled myself together for a cocktail wedding on Saturday night… drugged up on painkillers, drank a lot of fluids, and very reluctantly got my party dress on for the evening. I didn’t really have a choice about going or not. It was the wedding of a really good friend of mine, who has done more than support me in my writing endeavours over the years, and I knew I couldn’t not go, since she has been planning this wedding for as long as I have known her. I managed to do my friend duty for a couple of hours, and then we got out of there.
So… officially no writing done except for this blog post… not exactly progressing my way to achieving my goal of finishing this novel by the end of the month, but however, goals can shift as swiftly as the wind. I’ll get there eventually.
So, that’s the extent of my update for the moment. It’s not much, I know, but at least it’s a little something. On the upside… I think I am starting to see light at the end of this hazy tunnel.

Thanks Catherine! I am actually starting to feel a little better today. Fever abated…. and so I am officially working from home at the moment. Not allowed back into my office yet 🙂
