Tennis and Writing

March 2011
The A to Z Blog Challenge is over. I learned so much and met so many wonderful bloggers during the month of April. I hope I'll be able to keep up with posting often, maybe not everyday, but often.

Since I have a book deadline that means I need to write seven pages or more each day, so I'll keep busy. Besides writing, teaching, and creating art, I need to give some time each week to another addiction--playing tennis. Exercise is a good thing, especially for writers who spend so much time sitting! My times for exercise are set ahead of time into my weekly schedule, and I do my best not to change or cancel those activities.

What cuts into your writing time?


Thanks again to everyone who made the Blog Challenge possible. And a special thanks to Alex Cavanaugh who encouraged so many to participate!

Thanks also to all my followers. It was exciting to go over 100 last week!

Glad you enjoyed the Challenge! Blogging often cuts into my writing time. Movies as well.

The challenge was a great learning experience for me, too. A family crisis prevented me from posting as I had planned, but I found some inspiring people anyway.
Thanks for stopping by earlier.
Congratulations on 100 followers,too, that's fantastic.
