Fingers Crossed.

I went to my writers' group anticipating hearing the last chapter of the novel one of our members has completed, but he wasn't there!  I'm going to have to wait another two weeks to find out how he manages to pull all the threads together.  I've finished the rewrite/editing of my own novel and it's gone out to an agent, so fingers crossed. 
The weight loss isn't going so well, 1.5lb on this week.  Oh well, at least I'm lighter than I was but I am beginning to doubt I can reach my goal weight in time for Number 2 son's wedding.  I think I'm going to have to do something drastic, like the microdiet (remember that?)  Onwards and upwards.

Good Feedback

It's been a few days since I last posted.  A week was taken up by a nasty virus that laid me low, then we went to Center Parcs with our small grandsons.  We had a great time, just what I needed to perk me up after feeling so ill. 
    I got the feedback from Bubblecow and I'm really pleased with it.  My novel isn't as awful as I imagined, it needs several tweaks and a bit of reworking in a couple of places but all in all I feel pretty good about it.  Somehow, the formatting went crazy during the sending and the indents and line gaps adopted a pattern all of their own.  I have no idea why that happened.  I have an essay to submit this week but after that, I will get to work on editing my novel.  I have to think of a way for Martin to be thrown into the sea then get rescued a day later, without ruining the photos in his pocket.
    The weightloss is going well too, another 3.5lb this week.  I wish I could eat more sometimes as I feel hungry quite often,  but I need to lose weight for September, when number 2 son gets married.

Marking Time

I feel like I'm marking time. I stayed the same weight this week and I haven't had the feedback from the literary consutancy, although to be fair, they did say I'd hear by the 7th and it's only the 3rd. 
Number 2 son had his birthday but celebrations were muted as the house is full of chicken pox.  Oh well, I hope next week is more interesting.
