What in the world does fingernail polish have to do with writing?
I enjoy having colored nails. The brighter the better.
I’ve found that when I paint my nails, my writing improves. The reason? When I’m typing, I look down on my hands and it makes me smile. It just looks good.
And a happy writer is a productive writer.
How does that apply to you?
Besides writing, what are some things that bring you joy?
Does solitaire or Angry Birds bring a smile on your face? Do you enjoy long walks? Ice cream cones? Playing tag with your kids?
Often, especially when the deadlines loom, writers tend to neglect the rest of their lives. But remember, a happy writer is a productive writer. So take a break. Go have fun and know that when you get back to writing, it will only be better.
