"My Weakness" by Moby

At present, I'm up to page 165 of my paper edit transfer. At this stage I feel like I am probably not doing the best I could do with implementing the edits. I mean, I should probably read over the whole thing instead of just focusing on the parts I had noted during the paper edit. But I feel good about the rearrangements I've been doing along the way, and how many words I've cut out. The wordcount is currently under 95k, which means I have already met my wordcount goal. However, there's potential for adding some words in these last few chapters, so I'll see how it all turns out I guess.

My face is swollen today. My aunty was telling me that when she had a similar procedure done on her face (but on her nose, not forehead), it took a couple of days after the surgery for the swelling to really start. I was confused when my face began to puff up, because I thought I had got away with hardly any swelling! Now I know I was wrong about that. But I'm not in any pain, so that part is fine.

Right now I am listening to "My Weakness" by Moby. Now when I hear this song, I think of that X-FILES episode. But I loved the song even before hearing it on that show. It's a gorgeous song, and if you haven't heard it, you should!


  1. I'm sure it's not fun having your face swollen. I'm sorry!!! Maybe you need to set the edits aside and just get some rest and take it easy. A few days of RnR would be good for your spirits.

    Oh and you like the X-files too! I had the theme as my ringtone before I got my droid. Now I can't find it on the Droid downloads in order to get it back and I really miss it! "The truth is out there" *doodlee-doodlee-doodlee-doodlee*

  2. Best of luck on the edits and I hope you feel better soon. Moby is great, love that song! :)

  3. I do like Moby very much! Hope you feel better soon. Go, you on those edits!!

  4. I hope you feel better! I just realized yesterday that my ms is way over wordcount--and I'm not finished yet. Have to figure out some places to cut.


  5. Poor thing - let's hope that it goes down soon! Sounds like you're doing great with those edits, and I'd say, if you have a system that's working, don't change it! There'll be plenty of time to check your work again and again and again...

  6. Everyone's body works different. I hope you feel better soon.

  7. I always think of the X-Files when I hear that song too!! Love it.


Thanks for your words, me hearties! and don't forget to leave a link to your blog somewhere I can find it!
