Been a while

Captain's Log, Stardate 06.25.2005

Okay, it's been a while. Not much going on. Plotting--or is it plodding?--away at my Chicklit novella. The hardest part has been coming up with TWELVE DIFFERENT TYPES OF DATES for my main character. It was scary considering the sheer number of Mr. Wrongs I could think of, except they had to be (relatively) well-rounded Mr. Wrongs, not just a divorcee who lives with his parents, or a hippie from Santa Cruz. Since my heroine interacts with them on a date, that means she 1) saw something in them initially to want a date, and 2) sees something alarming enough to terminate the acquaintance immediately. :)

I recently got free books--I entered a book review in Mary Gardner's monthly drawing and won all three books in Liz Curtis Higgs' Scottish historical fiction series. I'm so stoked--I've been wanting to read them, but couldn't quite justify spending the money.

Diet: Umm, maybe let's not go there. Oh what the heck, confession time. Having a hard time motivating myself to exercise (so what else is new?) and still struggling to control the amount of food that enters my mouth. Somehow I've got to synch my eyes and my stomach. Why does it take more than 30 minutes before my stomach feels full? That's been killing me lately--I'll eat because I'm still hungry, then feel like a pig later. Oink, oink.
