I finally have gotten over my fanfiction addiction and I’m writing again. I’ve got two books running around in my head and on my playlists so to speak. Getting them on file is sometimes easy and at others like wading through molasses quicksand, so pretty normally for most writers I suppose
I’ve transferred all my files to Google Drive. Google has changed the intellectual property and sharing policy over the years making it a much better choice. Now it’s easier to bounce back and forth between my laptop and tablet. It also means I don’t have to be hauling my huge gaming rig into Panera (or the pool) with me to work.
I can also easily share permissions to allow beta readers to comment. It had been a real challenge to find a format and software that could be shared between a number of different apple and android devices. The problem is solved for the most part.
Saw your post asking about your book. So I looked through your blog. I want you to know you are not along in your weight struggles! I have lost and gained 5 of my many pounds for the last year. Thanks to your post I think it is time to dust off my fit bit! It is fine to keep starting over! Please don't quit!
I do think getting a fitbit could help me. I went out yesterday with the fam and found a bike I like. I’m glad to hear you are not giving up.
I ran into a friend in an unexpected place while on an errand this morning. He pulled me out of my head and there he was, standing next me after decades. It was so good to see him.
It’s a reminder that we take for granted we will always have time in the future for the people we hold as friends and family in our lives. We blink and years have gone by, even though we have had the best intentions. Facebook and social media just exacerbates the situation, giving us a false sense of closeness. I’m so very guilty of letting good people slip away because there will always be time to catch up later…
I’m trying again. I’ve been under so much stress for so long that trying to lose or even maintain my weight was just an other overwhelming issue for me. Now that a little has eased off, I’m trying again.
I had lost 50 pounds from my current starting weight over a couple years. No one but my doctor and a couple acquaintances seemed to notice. It was so very discouraging, that I felt I’d tortured myself for nothing.
We have a membership to the YMCA. I might even get myself a fitbit, although I’m not sure what good it will do me for the seated elliptical and the pool.
I’m using meal replacement high protein shakes, eating one meal a day, and trying the hydroxycut sprinkles. 200 pounds is an awful lot to lose.
