Hello.

First of all, thanks for all your help and time.

Are the following sentences grammatically correct?

"Anxious at the negotiation she was doing through text messages, she quickly got up from bed, and walked in circles around the living room table, thinking about how to achieve her best position to get out of this nightmare soon."


Thanks.

The most common usage for anxious is to be anxious about/over/because/for something. Rarely do we use anxious "at", and to me it sounds strange.

And it may just be a matter of style, but I prefer "as soon as possible" to simply "soon" in this sentence.

"Anxious about/because of the negotiation she was doing through text messages, she quickly got up from (her/the) bed, and walked in circles around the living room table, thinking about how to achieve her best position to get out of this nightmare as soon as possible."


Thanks.
