Before I give you more information about The Beast Within, I wanted to provide some additional encouragement to writers. I know writing can be tedious especially when we find ourselves in the month of November and pressured to write 50,000 words for National Writing Month. Sometimes we forget to take a break and more importantly we forget to exercise.
As a full-time author and part-time personal trainer I know it can be hard, but it is not impossible. In fact its while I'm at the gym or on a run that I'm inspired the most. It could be the lack of oxygen taking me to a near halucinogenic state but my plot and characters seem to come alive.
I know you maybe thinking that you have enough on your plate with writing a book much less worrying about exercising, after all there aren't many authors/athletes out there right? But think about this, if you have enough dedication, commitment, resolve, and discipline to write, you can certainly find a few minutes a day to exercise. I think as writers we have a tremendous opportunity to stay active and find time to workout, because we are already one of the most disciplined and dedicated workers.
In the next post I'll give you some tips and ideas on how to burn a few calories while taking a break from writing your book. I'll even share "Connor's", the main character from The Beast Within, workout routine with you.
