No, I didn’t get my entry in to the Los Angeles NaNo anthology on time. My son did; I didn’t.
No, I haven’t done much writing over the last four weeks.
To be fair, I was very ill for two of those weeks. The week after my last blog post, I may have been infected but not yet symptomatic. The week after that, I was actively ill, and had to switch antibiotics after a bad reaction to the first prescription as well. I’ve spent two weeks recovering from the side effects of that first antibiotic (“It’s new! It has far fewer side effects than the older antibiotics for this condition…”) and while I’m functional this week, there are some lingering reminders that my body was very unhappy with me.
So this week I am trying to catch up on all the stuff that was left undone for three weeks, including blogging. And writing. And stuff for my charitable volunteer work. I will stop whining now; I wasn’t hospitalized, there doesn’t seem to be any permanent damage to my health, and I will get back on track in all my projects. Real Soon Now.
