Hello everyone! Time for my weekly update!
--First and foremost, I have a new critique partner! Jena Lang and I have been good friends for years and years, so I'm very excited to become CPs! She's a Celtic Hearts sister of mine (she's the one who encouraged me to join in the first place), and she also writes Medieval Romance! I loved her critique of my first chapter, and I adored reading and critiquing hers =) For links to her blogs and Facebook etc... you can check out the "Links" bubble at the top of this page.
--As I mentioned above, I received my critique back. I really liked her suggestions, so I sat down and made the changes. I thought it was going to take forever, but it only took me a couple of hours on Thursday evening and Friday morning to fix everything. I sent it to my Alpha, who read it over the weekend and LOVED it. She didn't think it could get any better, but now she thinks it's fantastic *Squee* After that, I sent it back to Jen to see if the changes were what she had in mind. I should hear sometime this week =)
--While I'm waiting to hear back on my rewrite of CH 1, I've finally started working on CH 7. I only have notes on how I want the chapter to go, so I actually get to write this rather than edit it (which is what it feels like I've been doing for the past month or two). I really like what I have so far, so hopefully that keeps up =)
--I formatted more manuscripts for the Golden Claddagh contest and filled out all of the necessary paperwork.
--I bought a wrist brace for my right hand. It's been killing me recently, and I have no doubts that it's carpal tunnel. After my two arm surgeries, my doctor said I had carpal tunnel caused by the strain in my elbows, but that it wasn't bad enough to have surgery yet. Well, it's several years later, and it's bad. I'm being stubborn about going to the doctor, but I know I'll go eventually.
--The husband and I brought Powell for tons of walks, which was nice. The puppy is so good on a leash, but he does pull every so often, so I can't take him by myself yet. My arms are just too bad. But soon, I hope =)
--We filed my Canadian taxes over the weekend (they're due at the end of this month). Technically I didn't have to file because I didn't make any money and because I filed jointly with my husband here in the USA, but we decided to play it safe and mail them in anyway. Since I made zero dollars, it wasn't difficult to fill out the forms.
--We ordered an elliptical! It doesn't arrive until next week, but I can't wait to start using it =)
Well, that's all I can think of right now! How has your week been? Do anything fun or exciting? Did you guys get your taxes in on time? *tsks* Heheheh.
