Writing Struggles

Today I have to finish and turn in an article on several nutrition topics. I’m at that stage where I have a draft that is mediocre. With some judicious, yet merciless, hack-and-slash editing, it will probably end up being pretty good. Usually editing isn’t a problem for me (for obvious reasons), but editing my own writing is painful.

I had better get to it. I don’t have any childcare today and Lucas is playing by himself at the moment. Let the amputation begin.

P.S. If anyone cares to look for it, I have an article published in the July issue of Sacramento magazine. It’s near the end in a special Medical Guide section (p 30) and it’s called “Easy Does It.” It’s about gentle exercise with a focus on yoga, tai chi, Pilates, and aquatic exercise.

    Thank you very much! I just got a call from Eunice, the 84-year-old yoga instructor I interviewed. She raved and thanked me for doing “such a nice job.” That was very gratifying!
