Should writers be reviewers?

As a newly published writer, I thought if I was asking people to review my books, I should be prepared to review other writers’ work. But to my surprise, many writers—actually most writers—refuse to review books. 180 more words

The Pros and Cons of Life in Tegucigalpa

Once, there were no predators, no prey. Only harmony. There were no quakes, no storms, everything in balance. In the beginning, time was all at once and forever — no past, present, and future, no death.

Been a long time since I last posted here. Have been posting elsewhere; tho' may often have looked like a rabbit running from an audience. Anyhow, this is appropriate for http://error451.me. A kind of coming out if you like: what's important to me is not *what* I do, but *who* I work with. And that's the truth ...

21 Days Without Sugar Experiment: that was hard! (part 1)

There seems to be tremendous interest right now in the health effects of sugar in our diets. Many people say that it is sugar, rather than fat, that is leading people to be overweight. 563 more words

In this article, Joe English does better work explaining the difficulty of cutting out sugar than I can, and since I've been meaning to write a similar post for a while now (though I did a year-long experiment), I will take advantage of the opportunity to have someone write the post for me. As someone who has had (and I would argue, continues to have, despite cutting sugar out) a sweet-tooth, I will say that it is very difficult for someone like me. I think sweet-tooth is a cover-up for "sugar addiction," and trying to cut out something I've been chemically and psychologically dependent on is an ongoing process that can take years. You may ask, "is it worth it?" Joe English didn't get into this yet, but besides feeling satisfied for much longer, and having a feeling of reliable energy, other foods (like vegetables and nuts) have much more intense tastes, and one can sense the sweetness in anything including meats, nuts, and cheeses. Another benefit has been that other stimulants (like coffee) are no longer as necessary to get me going or keep me going, but they help when a craving comes on. The danger of cutting out sugar is that it can be replaced by another addiction (like alcohol, tobacco), but having the will-power to cut out sugar (especially if you have a sweet-tooth like me) can assure you that you'll be able to control any other addiction as well. I don't want to trivialize serious addictions that result in alcohol and drug abuse, but I also don't want the addiction to sugar trivialized either. I think if people can be more aware of how pervasive it is as an additive, and how much control it has over what we consider "tastes good," then one step towards combating obesity and its related diseases will be taken.
