Lemons Into Lemonade

Talk about taking awful news and turning it into something good. RuthAnne is an FMer who discovered writing was hurting her health, and who found a way to turn it around and make it something that would actually bring her back to health, and give her a potentially saleable book at the end of her journey. Read, read! This is terrific!

    Though my journey was not as extensive as RuthAnne’s, I, too, went through a lot as I brought my health back under control. And it’s impact has been recently put to the test as I work as a technical writing during the day and on my novels in the evening and weekends. I’ve been able to literally "workout" carpal tunnel-like symptoms due to the near daily weightlifting and every other day cardio.

    I agree. I read RuthAnne’s post and I can’t help but be impressed by her attitude and fortitude to get health problem under control.

    And with all that, she managed to find a very unique way to both address a serious health problem, and make it into a project to allow her to continue her writing.

    I think there is a great deal to learn, in that post, for the rest of us.

    Ruth has been inspiring me for nearly a year now with her innovative ways of dealing with writing, her health, and other life problems. This is just the latest example of her tenacity and creativity.
