Cheers to Healthy Writing

*pops cork and offers a toast*

We survived a week of unhealthy writing.  Now get busy with your healthy writing.  Set a goal and remember to hug your kids, dust your bunnies and feed your Significant Other as you work your way toward success.

What do you have planned this weekend to keep your personal life and your writing life in balance? 

Me, I’m coaching a speech meet.  It’s not exactly a break from the writing process, but rather it’s a different way to look at it hear the written word.  After hanging with the speechies, I find myself refreshed and motivated to write.

Hugs and have a great weekend~


(Un)Healthy Writing 3: Codependency

Co-dependent relationships aid and abet bad habits.  For the third installment of this series, please hop on over to From the Write Angle to determine if your writing relationships are healthy…or not.

For something a little lighter, whip up a simple, yet delicious, dessert for dinner tonight.


  • Cool whip
  • Yogurt–flavored to match type of fruit
  • Fresh Fruit such as peaches, strawberries, mandarin oranges, raspberries, blue berries or blackberries
  • Mini Pie Crusts (optional)
  • Whipped Cream (optional)


  • Slice or dice fresh fruit as needed.
  •  Fold together fruit and equal quantities of yogurt and cool whip.
  • Chill for 1-4 hours…if you can wait.  If not, feel free to eat it now.
  • Before serving, spoon filling into pie crusts (or bowls or one large crust or scoop it out of the tub with your fingers).
  • Top with whipped cream and a berry or two for garnish.

This is Middle’s favorite dessert.  He makes it for all of our large family gatherings and special dinners.  It is so refreshing, your significant other won’t even notice that you forgot to take the load out of the washer and your clothes now smell like Aunt Edna’s attic.
