Here's a new take: writing as part of a diet plan

Summer is fast approaching, and with COVID restrictions lifting, thoughts are turning to shedding our COVID fat.


Have you considered writing as a diet plan? That sounds crazy, but writing as part of your diet plan might just be the nudge some writers need to stay productive.


Here's the catch: you have to care about what you're writing.

A study found that people who write about what they valued lost weight. Apparently, experts have concluded making ourselves happier acts as an appetite suppressant.


Doesn't that give you a thrill?? It does me. When I'm writing, I can experience so much pleasure it takes my breath away. I said "I can experience" because sometimes writing is just work. But at times, the act of creation is a joyous occurrence. Those days, I finish a writing session and can't wait to get back to my manuscript.

So, hustle over to your keyboard or notebook, and get writing!

Write on, friends!
