“Writing is not necessarily something to be ashamed of, but do it in private and wash your hands afterwards.” — Robert Heinlein, science fiction writer
Pennsylvania State University’s newsletter, LIVE, ran an article today about writing and health titled Writing your way to better health. Apparently, writing is a good habit after all, even if you should do it in private and wash your hands afterward. It basically says this: if you write about past trauma, you will be healthier for it.
The reason I brought this up is because there was a link to a blog of writing prompts (you probably know that I believe in story starters and writing prompts). These aren’t like mine – the story is secondary. The focus of Your Write to Health is on your mental health. Check it out.
