Another Week!

It's Monday again! Having just got through last week, you know what? I have to start all over again! These Mondays are starting to come around very quickly - too quickly.  By the time next Monday comes around, it will almost be the end of January. Not only that, but I will be entering a whole new chapter of my life and the frightening part is - I can't do a damn thing about it!!

Where do I go from here? I'm told life will go on exactly the same, but will it? Will people start to look at me differently??  I damn well hope not, because I am the same person and there is plenty of fight in me yet!! Besides, I still have things I want to do and one of them is get a story in Take a Break Fiction Feast.  Any brilliant ideas on how I might manage that would be good.

Anyway enough of that! I just wanted to get it out of my system!

On Friday evening I was at friends' house for drinks. There were around ten of us, so it was really very nice. It's good to be able to have a chat with friends. However, I didn't drink too much because, as you know, I'm on a diet!! Yes I am really sticking with it this time.  I lost another pound this week making in 5lb in two weeks, so I must keep it up.

Someone in Texas has sent me their manuscript to read, as they want my advice. I'm not sure yet how they came hear about me or why they think my advice is worth anything. However, I'm in the middle of reading the story now and it's quite good actually. But it seems this person can't find a publisher to take it on and wants my opinion.

Another person in New York has also asked me to check out the alterations she has made to her novel, so it seems I'm going to be busy this week.

That's all for the moment,

I hope the sun is shining in your world.



  1. Well done on the 5lbs loss!
    And yes of course life will go on exactly the same - you're still you :-)
    And a very kind you, reading through manuscripts for others x

  2. Thank you for your comments, Teresa.

  3. Good afternoon (in your world) Eileen!

    I felt a spark of what you may be doing in this up coming chapter in your life come next Monday! :) People are asking you for help in what you love doing. They value your opinion. You could add these new reading and editing or whatever you can do to help writers to your own writing projects. That's always a good sign when people come to you! :)
    Have a wonderful week and enjoy your new healthier way of eating, as I am starting, as well. Life is good!
