I awoke on Saturday with a high temperature, blinding headache and feeling rough. This is a problem that most people forget when you are self employed. There are no sick days. No one else to do the work for you. But there was no way I was missing the birthday celebration of the Words and Pictures online magazine.
So after two paracetamol I put on my glad rags and went over to the party.
I'm pleased to say that the good food and company had me feeling much better. It was wonderful being able to sit and chat with like minded individuals.
If you are a writer or an illustrator I can't recommend joining SWCBI and following Words and Pictures highly enough!
Here are some useful information and links below.
