A new study says that we add two years to our life by staying off the couch. Moving is good! Can you imagine how many brain cells we save when we keep challenging ourselves with new adventures?
The author John A. Shedd said, "A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for."
Trying something new is scary but also exhilarating. Fear and excitement accompany every new adventure but in the end the excitement of trying something new overpowers the fear.
So don't let your ship stay in the harbor too long. Expand your writing. Try new genres. Tie your writing into something else you love. If you like cooking, write a cookbook. Love to eat out, query your local newspaper about writing restaurant reviews. If shopping is your thing, blog one day a week about specials you find.
Have a passion? Tell me how it may compliment your writing or lead you on a totally new venture. Mmmmm, got you going now.
