I wrote "The Tortoise and Hare Approach to Running Pace" today based on an insight from simply completing a training run.

I thought of this familiar Aesop's Fable because I started running at a turtle's pace.

To promote my fitness article in my DeHaan Services blog, I put more of the focus on Aesop's fables; see
"Fitness with the Tortoise and the Hare".

One Runner's Writing Tip

When I finished my run, I realized that I had just learned a lesson that had a bit in common with "The Tortoise and the Hare". At least, the slow start was similar to that reptile's.

But the writing tip is to pay attention to any insights you gain in the course of everyday living. As a writer, make that something you can share!

Even if you're not writing in the "self-help" field, any random insight can lead to a new article. If you think there's a link between unrelated new items, do some research and make your case. Does new space exploration by newcomers (whether SpaceX corporation or national projects by India or China) affect global oil prices? Are Internet privacy concerns related to Common Core adjustments to teaching? Did you make your life more efficient or pleasant?

Write about it. Make someone's day "fable-ous".

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
