#IWSG – Writing, exercise, self-improvement

I think I know what this blog will be now.

It won’t be much of a change, just a different approach. I’m looking at ways now to incorporate the exercise and healthy lifestyle changes I need along with writing. I’ll write about the activities and exercises I do to make sure I can write fiction, and about how writing fiction keeps me going back to that exercise.

I’ll write about how I’m addressing the issues in my last post, and share some of the writing that comes from the process.

I finally feel ready to return to writing. The ideas never stop! I have so many of them, and a terribly slow typing speed along with so many other things demanding my time. But I have to try, and I have to get back out to the writing groups that mean so much to me.

I hope readers will find some value as I talk about how I deal with these problems, and how my physical exercise and weight loss ties in with writing fiction.

Keep writing. I know I will.

  1. Welcome to the IWSG hop! I’m co-hosting this month, and I wanted to stop by. A couple of tips: 1) Leave your blog link in comments when you visit the posts of other participants. 2) Make sure your Gravatar is linking to this blog so that when you comment on WordPress blogs, they can easily click and find you. Bonus tip: If you visit my recent IWSG posts, you’ll find lots of active participants who return comments, and that might be a good place to start. Just scroll down on my IWSG post from last month, for example, to find lots of participants who participate regularly and return comments.

    Kudos to you for devoting time to exercise and healthy lifestyle changes and using them to inspire your writing. Good luck to you as you tackle all three ~ none of them is easy, but each of them is rewarding.

    Thanks for the welcome – I’ve actually done a number of ISWG posts before, it’s just been so long I got kicked off the blog list!

    Back at it, I say, and I will definitely visit your blogs!

    Sounds like you’ve got a plan in place! I think physical health has a big effect on how productive we are in our writing. Good luck with it all.

    That’s optimistic! We need to put or mind to writing & yes, we can!
    Best wishes to you šŸ™‚

  8. Seems like a solid writing plan!
    Just keep at it… word by word… sentence by sentence… it will fall into place.
    Remain positive… and everything of the best!

    Welcome to our wonderful writing community!

  9. I love your line about writing fiction about exercising.
    I love to write too and my attitude to exercise is similar.
