The Writer vs The Virus


Here to prove that the pen is mightier than the sword, The Pylon from the island (I never said Iwas good at rhyming): Jim the writer!


Coming out of retirement after 21 years in a nerve cell; The bug with the gloves: SHINGLES

That's right folks, I have been stricken by the little beggar that has, apparently, been laying dormant in a nerve cell since the last time I had chicken pox.  No one has ever mentioned to me how painful this incarnation is.  Oh and anyone that tells you that you only get chicken pox once is lying, I've had it twice.  Does this count as a third time?

So I have some time off work and to prevent the onset of cabin fever, decided to do some writing for this years NaNoWriMo.  It seemed like a good idea at the time, until I discovered that sitting at the desk just irritates things even more and increases the pain.

Still, we're supposed to suffer for our art are we not?  And it has given me the chance to make a start on the new short: The Crows and the Tree.

So how are things going for my fellow Wrimo'ers? Are you reaching your targets?
