Put the teapot on at 5:30 am, retrieved ham bone from the freezer, put on the last of dried beans (if dried bean supply is gone, does that mean it is spring?) and picked up my book. Had no creative ideas...no zip for exercising.
I have noticed the last week that two other writers use Leslie Sansone's walking DVDs. Both Cindy Dagnan and Debra Vogts mentioned this form of exercise on their blogs. Writers need exercise. Sitting at a desk all day is not healthy, not to mention the drinks and snacks it takes to keep a writer going at the keyboard! Then add winter carb craving to the mix and well writers, especially this one, need all the help they can get to keep moving!
You might find Caryn Mirriam Goldberg's blog interesting at http://carynmirriamgoldberg.wordpress.com/2011/02/07/five-easy-pieces-february-write-from-your-life/ Goldberg is the Kansas Poet Laureate and has lots of writing ideas and projects going. In honor of the 150th birthday of Kansas, Goldberg has a special poetry page at http://150kansaspoems.wordpress.com/2011/02/07/18-breaking-the-drought/. This is excellent!
Like a winter rabbit I am going to creep back to my snow den now.
