Weighing in on Weight


My essay on weight and body image–as it pertains both to my own life and to The Girl of Fire and Thorns–is up on the Greenwillow blog. I admit, I was nervous to write this, and it’s possible I have overshared! But thanks to everyone who has supported me, especially my amazing publisher for giving me a platform to share it.

Happy New Year. May your New Year’s resolutions be happy, healthy, and attainable. 🙂

    Your essay was fantastic. While I do not suffer from such stereotypes, I wholly agree, and love how you are incorporating your choices in your books 🙂

    I have a question regarding Elisa’s weight. In the first book, it seems like she lost a substantial amount from all the walking. I am guessing she didn’t gain it all back? Yet it’s hard to tell if she is still overweight and eating emotionally in the 2nd book.

    What I couldn’t figure out is if she thought she was unattractive and people were mocking her for her love of scones because of how she looks or because of residual body image issues. I think that the perception of how you look is just as important as how you do look, and how people judge you by it.

    And, despite the industry growth figures, the
    digital discount craze is still a tiny fraction of the discounts used in the United States.
    Well with free e – Bay coupon codes there is no way you can lose.
    So I took to some review websites in order to get a feel for what people were saying.

    Have you ever considered about including a
    little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and everything.
    However just imagine if you added some great visuals
    or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this
    blog could definitely be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Amazing blog!
