Writing Tip 19:
Writing requires stamina and nurturing not only for your words but for you. As you are creating your memoir or your novel, remember to take care of yourself. It is very easy to call in delivery food so you can to sit for hours typing away when the mood strikes you. But remember balance is essential for all things especially in a solitary act such as writing. So plan in time for exercise, create some nutritious meals that you can enjoy and keep your stamina up.
Writing Exercise 19:
Write a story about mealtimes in your family.
