I woke up several times in the night with a swollen throat and the beginnings of migraine.
The migraine hit in full force this morning. I didn’t manage to get out of bed until around one in the afternoon. I scribbled a few words down, but I don’t know if they’ll even make it into my novel.

I’ve been ill with a nasty chest infection. I have been stuck to the sofa. Every time I move my breath becomes short and heaving. At it’s worst I couldn’t take a few steps without having to take my Inhaler. It has been thoroughly exhausting.
However, like any good scribe, I took the opportunity to exploit my aching body for the good of my novel. I now have a brand new first-hand account of a chest infection…lucky me?

Today was not the best. It started with a tickly throat that’s now become a hacking cough. I chipped a tooth and my body is aching all over.
However, I did manage to do a bit of writing despite being huddled up in a blanket for most of the day.

Considering I’ve been either sleeping or throwing up for the past few days it will not surprise you that I have not done any writing. It was my plan to get the synopsis for my novel written by now.
I am almost feeling human again now and have managed to eat a little bit today. I think maybe I will be able to make a start on the synopsis tomorrow.
I’m happy enough that I’ve managed to write these words and posted on my other blog.
Time for another nap
