This is a short little blog post to remind you to take care of yourself. Get enough sleep, eat healthy stuff, get some exercise. The writers’ life is pretty sedentary, and while writing keeps your brain acute, it doesn’t do much for the rest of the body. In Winnipeg, we’re still waiting for spring to arrive, so we can get out and enjoy the real world, but for those of you who already have some warmer weather and sunshine, get out and enjoy. Work up a sweat, drink lots of water and, for goodness’ sake, lay off the sugar. I'm talking to myself as much as anyone else. I'm ready to shake off winter and my extra layer of insulation. Wishing you all a spring time full of good health and great stories!
