I’ve you follow my facebook you’ll likely have seen this already, but if you haven’t – since Wednesday evening I’ve had a persistent sore throat which has gotten worse since then. Today I’ve taken the day off work since my supervisor kept trying to convince me to go home yesterday (if you know me you’ll know how much I hate calling in sick, so this should tell you how unwell I’m feeling). So, naturally, I didn’t get a lot of writing done this week.

Having said that, I did make some small progress at the beginning of the week. It’s not much, but I got 3,613 words done before my throat started playing up, which brings the total to 55,419. I’m planning on taking it easy until Monday so that I can come back with a huge word count next week.

I also started drawing the map for my world yesterday, but it’s nothing worth showing just yet. In a few weeks time, maybe, I’ll have something to show you… It’s the first map I’ve tried my hands on so it’s an interesting learning curve.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a warm blanket to snuggle into.

Enjoy your weekends, everyone!
