State of The Trout: Exhausted

Posted in Uncategorized

Hey everybody! Just a quick update to let you know what’s happening. Thank you all for your kind words and your support with the bikini thing. I know it’s a trite and corny thing to say, but I actually have a little more hope for humanity.

So, in case you missed it: I was on Good Morning America and If Ever I Would Leave You came out.

Stuff coming up: I’m in talks with a syndicated daytime show to come on and do a make-over type thing where fat women step out of their comfort zones and do a reveal on TV. Stuff like being afraid to wear a swimsuit or show your arms, that kind of thing. If you’re interested, email me and I’ll forward your name along to the producers.

News on The ExThe Afflicted, and the sequel to Such Sweet SorrowI’m about 40k words into The Ex, and 11k into the sequel to Such Sweet Sorrow. I am hopeful that The Ex will release ahead of the projected spring 2015 date. I’ll reveal the cover at the end of August, and it’s another hot one.

News on the Buffy recap: I swear to you, it’s on the way. I just have a lot to say about this episode, and I’ve been wicked busy. Things are going to calm down, though. I swear this. Don’t give up on me. I won’t give up on you. I’ll never let go, Jack. *Lets you drift gently to your watery grave.*

I’ve been asked to recap an episode of The OC, even though I’ve never watched the show and have no idea what it’s about: SnarkSquad asked me, “Would you recap season one, episode twenty-four of The OC?” and I was like, “I’ve never seen that show ever in my life,” and they were all, “That’s even better!” If you haven’t checked out the recaps, they’re going on right now. I think mine comes out in August or something. I’ll post the link when it goes live. I’m just bringing it up now because I’ve got to do the second half today and turn it in because my deadline is tomorrow and I live on the edge.

      Two of my favourite things collide!

      I love SnarkSquad. I found them at the same time I found your blog; when I desperately needed someone to destroy Fifty Shades of Grey. Your blog and their site helped me through all three of those terrible books.

      I’m currently reading (and watching along with) their Veronica Mars recaps. Fun stuff. I’ll definitely check out your The OC recap.

    Oh. My God. My brother–my sweet, ex-Marine brother–made me watch the ENTIRE series of The OC with him. It’s. . . It’s an experience. In the end, I thoroughly enjoyed spending that time with him, and critically dissecting a very ridiculous show. I’d never want to watch it again though.

    I know that episode, too. It blows goats HARD so it should be a lot of fun!

    Also, congrats on everything else mentioned, I just got really excited when I saw The OC. Maybe. . . maybe I would watch it again. . .

    OMG! Good Morning America! You are a star! I am so proud of you! I am sitting here trying to type this with tears in my eyes. Finally, a real person role model! Fantastic!

    You go Jenny! I am so happy for all the buzz you bikini piece got. As a fellow plus sized gal who is extremely body conscious it was really inspirational for me to read.

    Also, I am beyond excited for The Ex. I can’t wait until 2015!

    I am one of the many who found your bikini post incredibly inspiring, and I think it’s awesome that you were on Good Morning America and getting that kind of exposure. I’m at work, so I had to watch the clip with the sound muted, but it looked like their take on it was very positive, for the most part (I’ll watch it again, with sound, when I get home). But the subtitle irked me: “Blogger embraces her body”. That kind of proves the very point that you were making in the article in the first place – “Oh my god! A fat woman who’s happy with her body? What will they think of next?”

    Anyway, congrats on everything that’s going on – you deserve all the success you’re getting and then some!

    (I hope the following comment can be understood as the supportive sarcasm it is meant to be based on enjoyment of your Buffy analysis.)

    Have you ever thought of publishing your Buffy commentary – that way you could call it work!

    Hi Jenny,
    Just wanted to let you know I heard your blog post (article? I have to go read it now!) on the bikini business being discussed on talk back radio in Melbourne Australia. I got such a buzz hearing your voice, which I have enjoyed through your blog for a while now, reaching me via a new medium of local radio!

    OMG! (I used to be a daily follower, but haven’t been on your blog in a while. Now I’m playing catch-up.) WOW! You are incredibly brave and inspiring. It’s one thing to post a few pics taken by your best friend. It’s a whole other level of personal growth and commitment to your message to make the decision to wear a bikini on national television. YOU GO, GIRL!
