Pool adventures begin!
Friday, April 23rd, 2010

You still have time to enter to win an Amazon.com GC!
Cast your vote in yesterday’s poll!

I took the bubble wrap (thermal blanket) off the pool yesterday afternoon and went for it. 74 degrees and everything was nipple-y! But I’ll do it again today. I missed my daily water adventures (diving for live and dead critters).

Did manage to quick-plot the next big book. It’s complicated. Too many main characters. But I’ll go ahead and write the synopsis today and submit it. Once I begin writing, the focus will (hopefully) settle out. Also brainstormed a short novella with my BFF Sasha White. That one will be short and UNcomplicated. Need some of those. Then I spent the rest of the day, setting up files for May projects and getting them on my desktop so I can hop from one to the other when I get bored with work on the big thing.

Restarted my diet on Monday. After I quit smoking all those lovely curves I discovered last winter under the pudding disappeared as I packed on 15 freaking pounds. Why does the weight pack on so fast and disappear so slowly?

    Lucky you. Wish I had a pool to help me lose my post cigarette smoking weight. Walk walk walk. That’s it for me. Can’t wait to see the next big book will be. Have fun with your chilly dive.

    Ah … if the weather cooperates you can work on your tan for Nationals! I’ve oftened wondered why we gain so fast yet lose so slowly: a cosmic joke I think. I’m with a medical weight loss plan now: pills that speed up the metabolism, they work! Lost 4 pounds in a week and moving all the time: great for my waist line but hell on my writing :)

    Better to have a few extra pounds then to continue smoking…so glad you kicked the habit. As with my own spousal unit, I am thankful for every day you are smoke free.

    Wesley! We’ll see. I have some time to wallow in whatever project catches my imagination. I like to take advantage of that luxury when I can.

    Heather! Thanks, I know I can always count on you. *smooches*

    Paula! Thanks. Didn’t get to swim today because of the crappy weather. :sad:

    Rachel! What pills speed you up? I could use some of those!

    Sonya! Staring at the extra weight, I can’t be too appreciative. And I miss it—terribly!
