Writing Excuses 8.8: Writing and Personal Health

Writing Excuses 8.8: Writing and Personal Health

From http://www.writingexcuses.com/2013/02/24/writing-excuses-8-8-writing-and-personal-health/

Key Points: Mental and physical illnesses are issues that need to be dealt with, not hidden. Some people write it into their books. Other people use it for something beneficial. Working and living in isolation may contribute to problems. Being open about problems can help. Also, beware the physical issues! Sitting, repetitive motion, etc. can be problems -- take care of them, don't ignore them. Insomnia may be a problem or a productivity aid.

[Brandon] All right. Writing prompt. Howard, you had one last time, and I cut you off. Do you want to use it this time?
[Howard] Last time it was very specific to writing cliffhangers. What I want you to do is, I want you to take an outline, and instead of outlining traditional outline, make a list of the questions you are going to ask your readers at the beginning of the book, and then make a much shorter list of the questions you are going to not answer for your readers right at the end.
[Brandon] This has been Writing Excuses. You're out of excuses, now go write.
