Day 8

Ever since I started the bike my body is looking better and better, and although I've got a long way to go, figuratively and literally, I'm beginning to look and feel better about my progress. The only problem is, the last time I wrote was Monday and it is now Saturday and now I'm going to have to write furiously to keep up to the weight I lost. When I first began this diet, it was the other way around: I wrote a lot to help distract me from feeling hungry, and now I slacked off with that (bad writer, no cookie!) and have a lot of catching up to do. 
I did 10 miles on the bike yesterday so so far I've ridden 30 miles in three days. That really doesn't seem very far at all. The destination I've picked is San Francisco. It's about 8 hours or so from here. Carson City/Reno is about 5 hours, and I remember when we went to Lake Tahoe (first time for both of us) and Zepher's Cove at sunset it was near the beginning of our relationship and we walked on the beach and it was beautiful and peaceful. Of course I was thinking of different B-movies from the 50's that have been shot there, like "The Creeping Terror". I'm such a romantic! And speaking of romantic, I'll be writing on "Heiress of Shadows" today and hopefully be making some progress. I rotate projects on different days of the week because I have so many ideas, but "Heiress" is one of my favorites.

The not so final word on 50 shades

There's a lot of hype, in case you've lived under a rock, about 50 Shades of Grey. Perhaps you've heard of this book somewhere? Well, I've heard mixed reviews about it and I found out a few facts that were puzzling to me.
One--that this book started out as Twilight fan fic. Say what?! What's amazing is that someone thought that writing Twilight fan fic was a GOOD idea. Second...really? Apparently the characters are so close in personality to the infamous Twilight characters, that would be enough to turn me off. Ana is a self-depreciating weak willed character who lets her life be run by Edward. I mean, Christian. I hate weak female characters that stay weak through the whole series. It's okay if you begin a story weak, then experience something, then learn from it, then change into someone stronger, but to not learn anything at all about yourself and always put a guy's needs in front of yours all the time is just plain silly and sends really the wrong mess…

Adele's story continues....


There's been a lot of speculation over the years about the existence of the secret branch of the government, specifically the FBI, known as the X Files. A government agency dedicated to strange, unusual, and possibly the paranormal. What better place to hide this supposed branch of government, but a stretch of desert that no one cares about and no one really knows exists (and pro…
