I have good news! I lost another 2.4 pounds, giving me a total of 22.6 pounds. I am so happy with that!
Now, for the not so good news. I haven’t edited since Monday. I KNOW!!!! Isn’t that terrible? I haven’t been able to edit at lunch because there have been 2 luncheons and other things that have gotten in the way. Also, Tuesday night I had a ladies Christmas party and didn’t get home until 9:30 p.m. Last night I had choir practice and didn’t get home until 9 p.m. Tonight I went to my son’s basketball game and after cooking supper, running to the store to pick up medicines, and cleaning the kitchen, I just didn’t have the energy to edit.
So why don’t I stay up late and do it? Well, I’m tired, thank you very much. Krista, T.Anne, and Marybeth are all editing away and I am not. I think my only saving grace is that I will have 2 weeks off in one more week. Then I will get to my edits. (of course, they will have finished by then, I’m sure!) No worries….we are all winners!
Now, for the Critique News! I let Lynnette Labelle do a little matchmaking and she formed a Critique Group for romance writers. There are 5 of us and we have set up a Yahoo Group to do our critiques. Three of us have up loaded a chapter and I am looking forward to getting to read them. (I haven’t yet, due to the crazy week!)
I have gotten 2 critiques on my first chapter and I am amazed at the good feedback I’ve gotten. Yes, there are places that need work, but it was great to see what others see. I like having confirmation on things I’ve wondered about and I had some new things shown to me that I had never thought about before! I’m excited about how this will make my writing stronger.
So this has been my week. The good, the bad, and the new! How has yours been? How are you doing with your writing goals? Any successes? Any procrastination going on? 🙂
