I also had flu last week, which has not helped with my upcoming deadlines. I have upped my novel target to five a month now on the Goodreads website although, I am only hitting two at the moment.

I have finally managed to crawl off my death bed. For the last two weeks, I have been struck down with a nasty strain of man flu.
A weaker man may have fallen, but I bravely hid under a duvet on the sofa and had cups of tea given to me by my lovely wife.
What it did allow me to do was catch up on some reading. I find it hard to read as much as I would like balancing a work life, home life, social life and academic study. All too often it is the reading that gets pushed aside or maybe I read two pages before going to bed.
Whilst suffering from flu I tore through Terry Pratchett’s Snuff, John Burnside’s A Summer of Drowning and reread four other Terry Pratchett Discworld books.
Reading widely can only help my writing but it is too simple to not read so I have made myself a resolution to read at least two novels a month.
