I have an idea for a related book that originates from a chapter in the current book. I want to include those scenes as a flashback but not sure how. They would become the second and third chapters in the new book if I included them. Should I just not worry about them being the same and copy them or should I try to change them? It would be a monster rewrite to do and still have them similar in both books.4 AnswersBooks & Authors4 years ago
I'm a 41 year old overweight woman. Sometimes, I lift weights at my gym. Last time I was doing 3 sets of 12 reps using 20-40 pounds depending on the exercise. Most of the other women in my gym are using less than 10 pounds. I don't understand why many people comment that I'm strong. They could do it too if they were more serious about it instead of just playing with the weights. I'm not doing it for compliments, just working out doing my own thing with the guys in the weight area. The only other women who lift like me are body builders or figure competitors.4 AnswersDiet & Fitness4 years ago

1. How long ahead of when they are scheduled to leave will they get their orders?

I've lost my appatite because of being sick. My husband brought fast food for dinners but I still lost 4 pounds. I'm overweight and losing those 4 pounds put me at the top of healthy weight for my height. So how can I avoid gaining them back?4 AnswersDiet & Fitness4 years ago
We ordered a month ago and still nothing yet. Last time they didn't arrive until October and even then it wasn't everything. Have any of you had long waits for your Sonlight orders? I know it's the beginning of school year and they are busy, but the other companies have already arrived and they were all ordered at the same time.2 AnswersHome Schooling4 years ago
We're supposed to have 4 days of heavy rain starting today. I'm new to running but already starting to make progress so don't want to take a break but don't relish the thought of getting soaked either just to run a few miles. What would you do?7 AnswersRunning4 years ago
I know it's exercise, but I'm not running very far or fast. However, it seems to help my bowels stay regular and give more energy the next day. Nothing else is different. My diet is still the same, but my weight usually goes down more steadily on weeks that I run. I do not react this way with other exercise of the same intensity level.2 AnswersRunning4 years ago
My kids have the Apologia General Science and Biology and they are terrible! They are not written in a traditional textbook style, but rather more as a conversational style. That may make it harder for kids when they get to college and have to use real textbooks for science. Plus, the writing is dull with few illustrations or diagrams to expand on the text. In some of the books his facts are outright wrong (no I'm not referring to the creation/evolution debate, but rather some of the actual science.)1 AnswerHome Schooling4 years ago
