San Francisco is cancelled

I won't be at Writers With Drinks after all. Like my mini-tour of the midwest, I've had to cancel.

For the first time in years I'm having an MS exacerbation. Why? No idea. It could be a recent swap in medication. It could be the relentless workload. It could be just that, well, I have MS and it tends to act in mysterious ways.

This has taken me off guard. (In fact I feel quite affronted by the timing, mutter mutter.) I'm no longer cancelling absolutely everything the way I was a couple of weeks ago--I did a local reading earlier in the week that went pretty well, and a video interview a couple of days ago--but it's clear that getting on a plane at the moment is a stupid idea.

So Kelley and I will not be travelling to San Francisco this year after all. For those whose plans I've messed with, I apologise.

  1. I hope the flare up dies down soon. Not for any tour's sake but just so you feel better, Nicola!

  2. Totally understandable. Air travel is overrated. Have a drink instead. :]

  6. So very sorry that it's casting a pall over an otherwise fabulous moment for you both. Rest and bask a little.

  7. One day at a time...my next nearest soul sistah has kept her MS demons at bay...she says good drugs and a glass of blended Laphroig with a splash of fizzy water of an evening can be sweet...take care, you two. Time for yourselves, for you've surely given us a deal of yourself in Hild...

  8. MS is a nasty, tricky weasel of a disease. (My mother had polio, which is much more predictable, if no less debilitating.) I'll be keeping you in my thoughts.
