Agree to write a piece for We Are Cult, try to NaNoWriMo, try to keep up with comics reviews, or, really, anything.
This is just a general apology for my lateness on several different things at the moment. Only a few weeks ago November seemed to be a month where only Thought Bubble would interrupt my writing. Instead the Trump election meant my blood pressure went up to over 200/90, my wife felt even worse than that (she’s American), and general stress affected my other health problems.
And then various other things have happened that have thrown me — for example on Friday a TV crew turned up to at the house, on an hour’s notice, to film my wife and dog for BBC TV (they’re on BBC Breakfast tomorrow at about 6:50 AM, if anyone wants to see what my house and family look like). It’s been that sort of month.
I’ve barely slept in three weeks, my blood pressure being high makes me aphasic, and the new medication I’ve been on for the last week or so lowered the pressure so fast I’ve been exhausted. All I’ve been capable of is binge-watching Deep Space Nine on Netflix. I don’t even *like* Deep Space Nine, but I don’t have the brain for things I like.
I’m going to try to get the We Are Cult piece (a review of Philip Purser-Hallard’s exemplary Devices trilogy) done tomorrow, and with luck my health should stabilise again in a few days, once I’m used to the tablets.
But in the meantime, I apologise if my posts have been less coherent than normal, and if I’ve let people down when I’ve committed to do things I haven’t done.
