"It's an ear hat, John."

 I meant to post on Friday. But on Wednesday afternoon I got really tired at work. By evening I had no appetite and was running a slight fever. The fever got worse and lasted until last night when it finally broke. I'm now just trying to recover from all the side effects - headache, queasiness, dizziness, and cough. You know, all that fun flu stuff.

 And that is why I didn't post on Friday. Because I felt like I was on my death bed and should be writing out my will. (Okay, not quiet, but close enough.)

 I did make it through Big Hero 6, which my whole family and some realities had been planning on seeing. I took my cloak and then wrapped up in all the unused coats various family members ditched during the movie. It was worth it. I have a review coming soon, but till then...if you haven't seen it I highly recommend it. It's a great movie.

 I also got behind on my NaNo word count, but that's to be expected. I attempted to write some, and even read, but in the end I gave up and watched cartoons. (You don't need metal powers to watch cartoons. That is one reason cartoons were invited.)

 I am trying to write right now. I let the last chapter in one of those evil cliff hangers and feel it is only right to work towards fixing it. However, every time I go to write I just stare at the screen for fifteen or so minutes and type out a word or two. Doing a post should count towards something. In fact, once I am done with this I think I will give up all attempts at writing and go watch more cartoons.

 I did experience what it is like to toss and turn all night. It wasn't fun, not like they make it sound in books, but on the bright side I can add it to more book research. And I plan to take my misery out on some of my characters - because what else would I do with a bad flu? I'm an Author, this is what we do.

 There, that's the best I can do right now.

 I'll be back when I feel less like a zombie.

  1. Being sick is the wooooorst. I admire you for even attempting to write when you're sick. I can't! I don't even pull up a word doc. I think it stops me from getting better anyway. Sick = REST. Cartoons. Sleep. Delicious food. NOTHING ELSE. *nods* I hope you rest up, okay, Jack?!!
    (I want to see Big Hero 6 so much!)

  2. I'm sorry you're sick! Hope you feel better SOON!

    If it makes you feel better... I'm about 1900 words behind on my self-appointed Nano goal. :)

  3. Glad you're feeling better.
    Catching Big Hero 6 this week. Had to see Interstellar first - and my review is up today.

  4. Do get well soon, Jack! I'm so glad you enjoyed Big Hero 6, and I can't wait to read your review about it (and sort of watch it myself).

  5. Ohhh… it's impossible to write while being sick!!! Boo!!! I hope you're doing better… so you can keep rockin' NaNo… HUGS.
