Over the weekend, I had an epiphany.
If I’m going to write anything longer than a blog post–such as a novel–I have to do three things:
- Sleep–before midnight as well as after
- Eat–no refined carbohydrates, no grains, no sweeteners, no processed foods, no added salt…
- Exercise–as in MOVE. I didn’t buy that stationary bike just so Ernest would have a new chew toy.
And since it’s already 11:23 p.m., and I set a goal of an 11:30 p.m. computer shutdown, I don’t have time to write about the Stories from the Heart 2012 conference I attended over the weekend.
However, several other bloggers have written about it:
Linda Hoye at A Slice of Life Writing. Linda has just received the printed copy of her memoir, Two Hearts.
Pat Bean at Pat Bean’s Blog. A retired journalist, Pat spends several months out of the year on the road in her RV, blogging as she goes.
Amber Lea Starfire at Writing Through Life. Amber is a writer and teacher who focuses on telling lifestories through journaling, memoir, and art.
I hope you’ll check out what they have to say.
I would tell you more–both the blogs and the bloggers are much more interesting than my vanilla descriptions imply–but I’ve already run several minutes over my deadline, and I still have to add links.
After that, I head upstairs to work on Goal #1.
