Today I discovered the perfect writing combo. Facial plus timed writing sessions. I had a facial kit lying around that I’d been meaning to use. Moisturizing is good, but there are times when the winds here have stripped all the moisture out of one’s skin calling for more intensive measures. Each phase of the facial involves massaging the face and then letting the substance sit. So I’d set my timer and write until it went off. Sometimes I had five minutes, sometimes forty.

At the end of the day, I have soft supple skin, a delicate glow and 2504 words more of my novel.
