Somewhat prone to illness; my poor ailing grandmother; feeling a bit indisposed today, you look a little peaked; feeling poorly; a sickly child; is unwell and can't come to work.
Ailing, indisposed, peaked, poorly, under the weather, sickly, seedy - affected by an impairment of normal physical or mental function.
However, two recent events have inspired me.
Firstly, Rick Bylina, an American writing colleague, published a very frank review of my newly released novel, Tidal Surge, on his blog.
Secondly, another associate allowed me to talk about why I consider writing a novel as an art-form.
Small kindnesses cheer the weakest hours. Have you done anything lately to bring happiness into someone's life?
