Dear Diary,


This morning marked day seven of my Weight Watchers plan. I weighed in. My eyes boinged. I LOST FIVE POUNDS! Woo-hoo!!! I don't expect to lose that much every week, but what a way to start. Color me happy.

I have a phone interview today to promote the July release of The Fall of Rome with the host of Medallion Press's Blog Radio. In fact, the interview is in--uh--thirty minutes. Note to self: Don't giggle and don't try to be funny. Just be you.

WRITING: Tweaked the first three chapters of the new WIP. Brainstormed a new story, possible mystery genre.
RECREATION: All work, no play.
DIET: I lost five pounds!!
MOOD: Inspired
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Great works are performed not by strength but by perseverance." --Samuel Johnson (1709-1784)

Thanks, Tori! :)

You bet, flchen1. The loss is a definite motivator. As for the interview, last minute it was postponed until next week due to a tech glitch. I'll let you know how it goes.
