Countdown to Publication: Fun Fact 55

I remember when my journalism school professor once told me that it was essential that a writer have an exercise regimen, I thought the whole notion silly. But I will tell you--when I am exercising consistently, I am also writing best. I mentioned earlier in the countdown that I ran my first marathon as a way to cure writer's block. I figured if I could train and run a marathon, I could apply the same principles to writing--just keep writing one word after another. The first marathon didn't entirely cure my writer's block, but I felt more accomplished and I started writing more. But it was the second and third marathons that kept me writing. I'm thinking of running another in 2010--if my knees let me!  (Photo: Happy me and my unhappy knee after marathon #1!)
