We had company tonight until almost midnight. I woke up at 9:00 AM and immediately started baking. I took a break to get some supplies from Costco and Whole Paycheck – er, I mean, Whole Foods – and then cooked some more. I made a lovely cake roll filled with pudding and whipping cream, Chocolate Revel Bars, Lemon Bars, Caprese Skewers, and beef stuffed crescent rolls. A rather good spread, if I do say so myself especially since we didn’t know we were hosting until yesterday. It was really fun actually to focus on some baking. I do love it and I rarely do it now that I am ALWAYS on a diet.

But anyway, although it is now almost 1:00 AM I did my 10 minutes of editing! I am on page 50 of 104, so not nearly as far along as I originally thought. I think this section focuses far too much on telling rather than showing, but I haven’t quite figured out how to “show” something when it is one person struggling through realizations as opposed to conversations. I wonder if other authors have trouble with that too?

I have very little to say by way of an update, which is why I have been putting off writing since the last time. I’m just – plodding along.

  • Editing my book, which is going far slower than I would wish it – and I am getting so many notes stacked up about the edits that have to be made, it is quite discouraging. Perhaps next time I won’t wait until the book is “done” to do actual research. But I don’t know – I seem to actually finish books when I do that. Still, I’m trying to move one piece at a time and not get too discouraged. It will be done eventually.
  • Working – not traveling as much right now, which is a nice change – I’m able to keep on my diet, do housework, and get on a schedule, more or less – and you all know how much I love schedules.
  • Dieting – as usual. Maybe this year I’ll actually lose it? My sister and I are doing weekly check-ins, which is helpful for keeping me on for the most part. I don’t like confessing I didn’t lose weight.
  • Daniel and I are not really working out this time around – we have decided instead to practice dancing and learn new dance moves by watching YouTube videos. I assume eventually we will start doing actual workouts again, but dancing is so much fun and we actually have room in our new apartment!

Anyway – that’s about it for me. Hopefully next time I’ll have more exciting things to say – like being done editing my book or something!
