Definitely been an odd week. 

Senior Management and I caught a bad case of the sickie-wickies. Light-headedness, nausea, cold sweats, flu-like symptoms, you know the sort of thing. Nothing too serious, but it certainly put us both off our stride, especially these last few days.

The doctor said he didn't know what it was, though if you ask me, I'd say it's one of those 'computer virus' thingies we're always hearing about.

I'm feeling a little better today. Hopefully, I can get back on track tomorrow.

How about you?

What's your week been like?

There seems to be something going around.
Probably because all the telephone disinfectors
were sent to the new space station first.

Been a good week here...working like the dickens on a story that appeared out of nowhere, demanding to be written in spite of having another WIP, and getting ready to go on vacation to a place that will have landscape significance to the official WIP. Wonder how traveling will interfere with my writing urge, though. I get horribly motion sick if I read while someone's driving. May keep a notebook and pen handy, even so. If I don't look down at the page too much, sometimes I can get away with it...

I can read on a train, but not as a passenger in a car :(

Glad to hear about the feeling better part for you.

This has been a very difficult week and the difficulties will probably be around a while. They *will* end, but for now not much cheeriness.

I'm glad you're feeling better. It's wretched to be sick, especially when it goes through the household like that.

It's been an okay week. Struggling to figure out how to rewrite a short story, struggling to figure out how to rewrite a side character in Minstrels of Fate who is causing problems... My mind is a frustrated place right now.

Sorry to hear you & SM have been sick but glad you're on the mend. :) As for me, I as usual have been working everyday for the entire summer. If I am not teaching a class, I am having a film meeting, or filming or writing, or making phone contacts. I was really just thinking this morning when I woke up that I really have not "chilled" for one day all summer or have been on vacation. I fell tired today and am thinking I need to get back on Vitamins if I am going to keep up this pace. LOL!!

I do see an end. I hope to keep at it like this until Sept. That is the month I will still teach a class or tutor here and there but I will go to Dragon Con the first week of Sept & then my friend from England is coming back again for the next 3 weeks so we will be going places & seeing things. But she is also a writing partner so we will be brainstorming on our 2 film scripts too.

Do we as writers ever really quiet our minds. LOL!!! BTW I am going to get both her & I a copy of your CD & Cup for "Fur Face" to give her when she comes. :)

Feel Better!!!!

Hugs
Pat

Long week but a nice weekend. I actually had time to go to a movie and blog about it.

Hope you and Sr. Management are both on top of the weather (as opposed to under it) soon.
