The Writer's Mind-Body Connection - April 16-29, 2012

We can all agree that caffeine wakes you up, a scary situation causes your body to produce adrenaline, and certain boring books put you to sleep. But the mind-body connection goes so much further than that. Research continues to prove just how closely our minds and bodies are connected, which has huge implications for writers. Are there foods you can eat to make you more creative? Will the time of day you work out affect the number of pages you write in a day? Can writing an emotional scene make you mad at your husband? Join author Kara Lennox for a fun and interesting two weeks, learning about the latest research and how you can apply it to your life to improve your writing (and maybe improve your life).

Kara Lennox is our Seminar Host

Currently she is working on her next book in the Project Justice romantic suspense series, published by Harlequin Super Romance Since her first novel was released in 1989, her books frequently appear on romance bestseller lists.
