I need a break

I so appreciate your willingness to listen to me blather on post after post, but I feel I need a break from blogging for the time being.

No, there's nothing bad going on. I'm just going to use this time, guilt free, to get my writing projects on track.

The photo of an aspen grove is a favorite of mine. I took it a few years ago when my hubby and I spent some time in Aspen. It's a gorgeous place, you really should consider taking a vacation there.

Writing as a diet plan?

That sounds crazy, but it might just be the nudge some writers need to stay productive.

That is if you care about what you're writing.

A recent study found that people who write about what they valued lost weight. Apparently experts have concluded making ourselves happier acts as an appetite suppressant. I guess it's the other side of the spectrum of people eating when they're depressed.

So hustle over to your keyboard or notebook, and get writing!

For more information, check out an article about the study here.
