I am a South Beach failure

I mean, I've lost like 10 pounds and yet this morning saw me dash out in a hail-mary for doughnuts. I am talking the talk but waddling the walk.

Honest to God, at some point I will post something here worth reading. Remember the glory days? Summer of 2003? All of 2004? When I was all type type type, merrily gasbagging my way through the blogosphere?

Then I decided to get serious about writing fiction - after inflicting a full three novels on you via my NaNoWriMo daily blog - and zip! the bloggy bloggingness dried up. Very sad.

The good news is that I am working on a new story, a young adult book that features a girl who just wants to take a vacation from herself. I am very squeeeee! about the characters, and am outlining a plot now. Multiple plots, actually. yay me!

Gratz on the ten pounds! That's non-trivial babe, be proud of it.

Blogging can be a real distraction from writing if you let it. The debate rages continuous in writerly circles. I think it has more to do with one's extrovert quotient than it does with brainspace/bandwidth.

But it's summer, and there is beer. SB can hold on until fall, no?

And honestly, if you can't fall off the wagon now and again then what good is a diet?

Hey, congrats on the new book! Turns out I am going all young adult with my big, slogging mess of a book... so I will be interested to hear some updates on how your story is going!

Well, not TOO many updates here. You should be fiction writing, after all. :)
