Fibromyalgia: How to Weather the Pain and Keep Creating

Thankfully, we’ve long since left behind the era when ashtrays overflowed on desktops, smoke hung heavily in the stale air, and booze bottles shared drawer space with notepads and pens. But newspaper reporting and writing […]

I have to admit straight up, I’m a sickly person and lazy as well, so writing to me is an ideal hobby / job. I cannot say that writing has come with a physical challenge as such, if at all, there might be a lack of Vitamin D, as I often sit inside convincing myself […]

The sun’s rays gleam through the picturesque window as her fingers click the keys. A steaming cup of coffee sits within arm’s reach, and her calico cat sleeps on her lap. She languidly types on, the story flowing from her mind onto the screen. She smiles to herself. Her masterpiece is almost complete, and she […]

For me the biggest physical challenges are lack of exercise and the tension that develops in my neck and shoulders. I have definitely gained weight since I launched my writing career.

For my entire writing career, I have lived with the dual roles of writer and student. These are two roles that are difficult to juggle, as both demand a lot of attention. Writing is my passion, but unfortunately, it often takes a backseat to my education. The busy life of a student, as many know, often […]

What is the biggest physical challenge of being a writer? I’m going to say maintaining spiritual wellness. I know, it’s not really a physical challenge, except that it is. In a way.

When I was writing my first novel, I gave little thought to my physical health—how I was sitting, the postage-stamp size of my desk, if in fact squinting down at a screen with hunched shoulders was a good idea. I had two small children and an urgent need to get the words down as quickly […]
