So...this blog is for people to comment on FatLand and the FatLand Trilogy. The main purpose here is to play with FatLand people and things.
Something I am "guilty" of is not specifying statistics and amounts of fat or heaviness. This is true. I do not intend to specify such things, ever. I leave these to readers' imaginations.
Something else of which I am guilty: I do not make my characters self-hating. (For the most part.) Most of them are empowered by their beliefs in themselves as capable and strong. I don't do "weak". Frankly, I don't know how.
I do know how to do athletic, and I love the idea of fat athletics and fat athletes. I haven't done anything athletic for a long, long time, but a lot of fat people are going ahead and running and dancing and playing, and they are breaking many barriers. My hat is off to them.
I also love the idea of fat spies and fat vampires (a la Falstaff in Lynne Murray's "Falstaff Vampire Files"). There is a wonderful fat strong female spy in FatLand II. I don't intend to do any fat vampires because I could never come close to Lynne Murray's Falstaff. Nor do I want to try.
