A Cold Writer

Unbelievably, in the hottest week of the year, I have somehow, miraculously come down with a cold. On the plus side, my hay fever has subsided dramatically, but I’m left with sore bones, a blocked nose and a general ill feeling. I wasn’t able to write last night but will more than make up for it tonight instead.

I was looking forward to project three for ages as well!

What do you do when illness strikes? Do you take some time off away from writing or do you plough on through?

P.S I use the word ‘miraculously’ in a negative way, as in, I don’t sit there and wish for illnesses to happen.



"I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories. They came built-in to my brain, almost like an Ikea instruction manual. The focus these days is to figure out how to now turn them into books" Tanya Butler, June 2018

  1. I laughed at your ‘miraculously’ side note, and it also made me realize that we can use words in so many more ways than we actually think of.
    I hope you have much success with everything in the future. x

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Katelynn. The benefit of having a cold is that all my hay fever symptoms disappeared so as the old saying goes every cloud has a silver lining. It really does!
