Julia Cameron recently published a book titled The Writing Diet: Write Yourself Right-Size. On one hand, it seems a silly and shameless marketing ploy (how many woes can “Morning Pages” cure?), but on the other, she does raise the valid point that stifled creativity often results in overeating. For me personally, the link between not writing and too much Ben & Jerry’s chocolate fudge brownie frozen yogurt is clear.
Please feel free to join me in the vow to count words rather than calories in 2008.
