Of course writing is an action! And writers are the most heroic (though least recognised) of all action-heroes.
|But don't forget to sit up nice and straight - and do those neck stretches every ten minutes!|
Don't let the air of serenity fool you. Behind the demure, yogic pose of the meditating writer there burns a smouldering and concentrated energy, a determined purpose, a single-minded dedication to the word, the phrase, the whole text.
So, hands on hips, shoulders back, muscles flexed, eyes bright ... then head down, tail up and you're off and writing.
