The Next Novel and Diet

Writing: I've decided what my next writing projects will be. Once I finish Avriet and start sending it out, I'll begin the Paul Graves novel. I must write it; it's been burning a hole in my head since June of the year sphogwarts started. I'm going to have to create an entire world for it, which will be a challenge, but I will do it. Paul is too good a character to let wither away in RPG limbo. Yes, I've resurrected him in two_alleys_rpg, but the Paul I really want to write about is the Death-Eater who hates being a Death-Eater but who also finds it the most challenging and fascinating thing he's ever done. That's the story I want to write.

After To Move the Heavens, then I'll go back to Vendetta, which was my science fiction/mystery novel. I want to be marketable as both a science fiction and a fantasy writer, not just as a writer in the fantasy genre.

For now, though--back to Chapter 2 of Avriet.

Dieting: I found this news article about intuitive eating. After reading it, this sounds a lot like what I've been doing for the past month or so, only I've been calling it the Saint and Sinner Diet. I've lost four pounds since September, doing this and light exercise. Since July, I've lost 7-1/2 lbs. So maybe there is something to what this guy says.

It's working for me, anyway, and I hardly feel like I'm on a diet, at all. I'm just eating smaller portions, fewer carbs, and balancing healthy food with sweets or potato chips when I feel the urge for junk. I'll see if I can continue the losing trend. At some point, I'm sure I'll have to exercise more, to lose more weight, but for now, it seems to be working rather well.
