Advice for Writers: 010

I skipped last week's advice because, frankly, I was pretty overwhelmed with everything else. But the good thing about online is that we can always get back on track easy enough. So here's this week's advice (brought to you by the Internet):

Thanks as always for the tips. Especially the one on writing through the cold and flu season. I stayed in bed yesterday, and just wrote in my journal. It was enough. And felt right to connect with pen and paper. I write differently with pen and paper than I do on the computer. It was nice to get in touch with that part of my thinking.

Thanks for the post.
