...it's been a few weeks since I last posted and it's all been down to the DWP. I've been super-stressed about having to appeal their decision, and it doesn't help that other benefits have now been stopped because I'm not "entitled" to ESA. So - no Income Support and, as a domino effect, no Housing or Council Tax benefit, which meant a letter from the Council demanding rent payments from this week....so I spent much of last week either in bed or curled up on the sofa. I still don't have a solution to the problem, but I've done all I can (sent in an appeal - which means a tribunal in 2 to 6 months time. But it also means I get placed onto an assessment rate and can re-start Income Support etc).
Anyway - this is a writing blog so what have I been writing? Not much. My confidence took a mighty knock when BOTH books went crashing out of MAYhem in the first round. However, I started reading Ag Anon again yesterday, re-writing bits here and there. I also have another bit of the plot sewn up - the reason why David is paranoid about spiders. It was one of those things I threw in out of nowhere, so I'm pleased I've managed to come up with a reason!
I'm off to take a look at chapters 6 onwards before deciding what happens next.
