My TaeKwonDo school is on a mission to get healthier. We have a friendly competition going on against another school in our organization. I've named our team the TKD Transformers and as of yesterday, the team of about ten people has lost around 63 pounds in just three weeks,
For medical reasons I need to get slimmer and I'm happy to report I made up 12 pounds of those hard earned numbers. There are no magic pills to take or incantations to recite...just common sense combined with a good foundation of sound nutrition. And most of you who know me, KNOW I can create a good analogy to writing with just about anything. Maybe I should start asking people to leave a comment giving me a topic to compare to writing? Lol...for those of you new to my blog...check out my older posts and you will quickly see what I mean.
I was thinking today about how writing and revising are very much like starting a good diet. Both dieters and writers look at the overall picture of what they are working with. They think about ways to trim the "fat" from things and introduce "lighter" versions while hoping the end result will still be as appealing as the original. Some times too much is cut out and it leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
But if you work hard and stay focused on what your end goal should be, the results can be amazing...
