Damn You Immune System!

I have more bad news to impart as far as the writing of Immortal Space goes I'm afraid. I said that last month I had a writing job that kept me busy for a week and stopped me from writing. This week I had something else happen to me that took it out of me for about a week and stopped me from writing; I got ill.

Surprisingly accurate representation of me this past week.
I used to think my immune system was pretty decent but lately I've come to the realisation that no, it's not. It's quite shit actually. I seem to get sick a lot and like to say that the day I wake up perfectly healthy is the day I'm convinced I'm going to die. Probably of natural causes at that too. I don't even know entirely what was wrong with me.

I can tell you that I woke up on Saturday with a terrible headache that wouldn't go away. I was also pretty weak and couldn't move too well without tiring myself out even more. I woke up on Sunday with less of a headache but with a runny nose. I woke up Monday with my nose in a worse state. Then on Tuesday I woke up feeling a little better and I've been recovering slowly ever since then. I'm also quite sure I had a fever I didn't really recognise because I wore a sweater for three days straight without taking it off, barely left my bed, but also never felt too warm. Needless to say I really needed a bath.

So I'm sorry to say that I didn't really get much writing done this week. Hopefully I'll be able to do more in the coming weeks to really make up for it and stick to the schedule.

On the plus side though I did a ton of reading.

Update: I'll give you full disclosure and say I wrote this on Wednesday. Yesterday I actually did manage to write two chapters of Immortal Space, putting me back on track. Though it was mostly exposition so I copied and pasted a lot of stuff. Not everything needs to be rewritten word for word in a second draft. 


  1. Sounds like you had a little dose of flu or something! Glad you're on the mend again.

  2. Sadly, I haven't written a thing all week as far as my book goes (okay, I am here still on Blogger, though).
    There's always tomorrow.

  3. sounds like you are on the mend, sorry to hear you were ill...stuff happens.

  4. Yeah, I'm sick too. I'm a weakling.

  5. I also feel like shit today, but I do not have time to go to bed and rest too much to do
