Alyssa Day on stress

“Leave the stress outside the door of your office and
only allow the joy of writing inside. When you sit down
at the computer, take a moment to appreciate fulfilling
your dreams of creating wonderful stories—
the Muse revels in positive energy.”

-Alyssa Day in an article
in Romance Writers Report, September 2009

: exercise for people over 50!


Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags.

Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.

(I’m at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

If you agree with this please send to the powers that be. Hope we can stop it.

While I always agree that hunting is an ethical God given right, I think that I would have to agree with the author on this one…. fox hunting should be banned!
