The mind is the writer’s best weapon. It is equal parts bullwhip, sniper rifle, and stiletto. If you treat your body like it’s the sticky concrete floor in a porno theater (that’s not a spilled milkshake) then all you’re doing is dulling your most powerful weapon. The body fuels the mind. It should be “crap out,” not “crap in.” Stop bloating your body with awfulness. Eat well. Exercise. Elsewise you’ll find your bullwhip’s tied in knots, your stiletto’s so dull it couldn’t cut through a glob of canned pumpkin, and someone left peanut-butter-and-jelly in the barrel of your sniper rifle.
Advice for 2012 — Even though some say this will be the last year we’ll be around, don’t go for broke quiet yet. Take care of yourselves, and I’m not just saying that because I want you to keep reading my blog 😉
My Resolution: Drink more water and less coffee. (We’ll see how that goes).
