E is for Exercise

Ok, so exercise is not one of my favorite things per se. But I sure love the benefits. Exercise has not only whittled away 75 pounds of chunk, but it's helped balance my brain chemistry making the antidepressants I've been on for the last 15 years unnecessary. My other blog, Finished Being Fat, is devoted to tips and tricks I've learned and am still learning.

Exercise is also necessary for a writer's soul too. I know I break out in a sweat doing all these blog posts. Or plotting my main character's trials and tensions. Exercise in any form helps us to grow. To reach beyond our current capabilities.

Here's one of my favorite writing exercises. Pick 10 people and write one sentence describing what makes them odd, unique, or interesting. After your done, you should have a sentence that would make someone want to know more about that person.

Example: My friend Amy developed a fear of water after falling in the toilet at age 5.

What's your example?


  1. That is a hilarious sentence. I definitely want to learn more about your friend Amy. Let's see...One of my husband's irises is shaped like a hexagon.

  2. Oooh, is your husband an alien? Like the host?
