Sorry about disappearing last week, RL kind of imploded on me and all of those things had to be bumped up to the top of the list. I'll definitely be around this week, even if RL decides to implode again. I'm not around from the 23rd to the 30th with travelling but I think one or both of those weeks are already covered.

Anyway, I'm rambling on. How is the writing going?

Hi everyone, I have no idea what even happened last week so we'll forget about it because I thought it was covered but obviously not. So we have a new week for maybe finishing something.

Discussion: resources. What are your favourite resources for writing? (this can be anything - software, assistive tech, recurring challenges and exchanges, comms etc) also if you think it would be useful to have, I can make a sticky with resources and try to keep it up to date especially the comms side of it.
