Get Some Exercise: NaNoWriMo Tip #28

As we near the end of National Novel Writing Month, we’d like to remind all the marathon writers to exercise. You should check out AppNewser’s collection of 5 Free Fitness Apps for Writers to make sure you stay healthy while writing.

If you want to put more exercise and movement in your life, the free Writers on the Move Facebook group can help.

Check it out: “We are a low-pressure, low-commitment group meant to assist members in inspiring ourselves first in an effort to inspire the group. WOTM is an open, private group and anyone can ask to join. Unlike most groups for writers, we don’t talk much about writing. Instead, we all contribute to a context that helps keep us accountable to our exercise goals. What kind of exercising do we do? All kinds. What kind of writing do we do? Who knows we never talk about it. We are too busy checking in about how we are doing getting and staying moving.”

Founded by author Christina Katz, the group will give you a place to shape and share new exercise goals to keep your body healthy for all your mental work.

This is our 28th NaNoWriMo Tip of the Day. As writers around the country join the writing marathon this month, we will share one piece of advice or writing tool to help you cope with this daunting project.
