I love my family and my life too much to waste it closeted away over an unfinished manuscript, isolated and border-line insane, with my stomach tied in knots over self-imposed deadlines. Seriously. If the actual writing of a book isn’t taxing enough, the burden of editing, re-writing, re-editing, gathering reviews, format decision making, and marketing […]

The sedentary nature of working at a desk during the day and then at night writing is a real health trap for me as I get older. I’m a busy person, always up and down the stairs and choosing to walk as much as possible when I’m out, but I don’t enjoy structured exercise and […]

For me, the biggest physical challenge is getting so wrapped up in the writing that I sit in the same position for hours until one of legs goes dead, or something like that. I can feel the discomfort creeping up but it’s the case of “just until I get to the end of this bit” […]

How I Use Yoga to Achieve Writing-Life Balance

by Melissa McPhail When I think of the greatest challenges I’ve had to face, time is often a factor within them. Time to finish the manuscript. Time to coordinate a hundred varying logistics. Time to deal with an emergency. Time to write. Time is one of the greatest hidden stressors of our lives. We often […]

I have to admit that I’m pretty lucky when it comes to the physically challenging side of writing. I often hear of fellow writers struggling with high blood pressure, carpal tunnel syndrome, insomnia, and the numerous other ailments that seem to come along with our trade. Occasionally, my back gets a little stiff when I […]

The term “sedentary lifestyle” has become a buzzword in our house of late. My husband has real concerns about the fact that I spend all day typing at my computer. I get so locked into my projects, so focused on what I’m doing, I forget about everything else. When my husband is away on business […]

My mental and physical health are inextricably linked. I’ve shared my personal space with anxiety and depression my entire life, and any attempts to mitigate or improve with medication has run the spectrum from ineffective to disastrous. I long ago learned that physical activity and a carefully tuned diet are among my best resources for […]

My biggest challenge is lack of time. I am a writer who doesn’t want to start work on an aspect of a project unless I have a good couple of hours. It takes me time to reacquaint myself with where I was and my mindset. Sometimes, though, that becomes an excuse to avoid it. Physically, […]

If they’re right when they say that sitting is the new smoking, although I’ve never had a cigarette in my life, I have a 2-pack a day habit! I spend way too much time sitting. It’s not a new problem. My 20+ years working in hi-tech also involved a lot of sitting. I spent hours […]

I think the biggest physical challenge to being a writer is it’s basically a stationary profession. Sounds pretty obvious, but I never really thought about it before. I write on my laptop, so I can move from my desk to my dining room table to my sofa to my deck when the weather is nice. […]

Writing is one of those job you can do at any time, in any place. As I write this blog post, I’m sitting in my car outside my daughter’s school. I arrived early for the 8th grade send-off so I decided to use the time to write. I carry my laptop, a clipboard and pencil […]

As a young mom, I left medical school after only one year, unable to find the right balance in my life. When I found a job working in admissions and teaching Latin at the Waldorf School my kids’ attended, I was thrilled and committed. It perfectly suited my desire to be a hands-on parent and […]
