> Have been laid low by this cold, meh, but starting to get over it My brain has been noodled. How do people write when they're not feeling great? I've seen some of you treat sick days as writing time. Me, I can't make my brain order ideas into words. As it is I ended up sleeping a lot and watching TV - season two of White Collar has finally made it to the UK, yay, and whilst I have problems with Elementary I watched the first few episodes of that and found it fun.

> Back in 2008 I wrote this about the fifth of November and the US election. I think it still stands: governments are not infallible, that voting is a power that we shouldn't take for granted, and that we can use it to change things. Regardless of who you're voting for, I hope you vote today.

The only time that sick days get turned into writing days is when the sick is from something, say, intestinal. Not anything to do with the head. Or sometimes, in the past, I've been able to take "mental health" days and those are the BEST for writing. But not anything that makes you tired/icky feeling! No, no, no! Those days are only good for rest and hydration!

I hope you feel better!

Aha, that makes more sense! Usually when I'm ill my ability to be coherent or focus checks out, so I'm down to (preferable simple or already watched) tv shows and films, unless I also have a headache and then I have no luck. Feeling a lot better now, thanks! Just a bit sneezy and fuzzy, but much, much better :)
