Re: Fighting Boredom

Janet, I am reminded that I did a lot of painting during my first years of aikido, and they seemed to coexist fine. Maybe, as you say, the visual arts are unaffected, whereas writing is not.

I am not sure about why, though. It could be the torment of writing. Most writers jump at any excuse to get out of a novel in the making.
For one thing, it takes so long to write one. It's like being incarcerated.
