Escaping Negativity with Writing

A lot has happened in the news not only this week but in the past couple of months. It is with all the negativity out there that I decided to channel that negative energy into writing.

As I shared in an earlier blog post, I am now in charge of the company newsletter. It has been fun finding out more about the dental lab where I work. For example, I discovered more about my business’s 3D printers used to print models of patient’s mouth and something interesting with an employee who made a witch’s mask for Halloween entirely out of dryer lint.

Monday featured a trip to Scottsboro, located between Huntsville, Alabama, and Chattanooga, Tennessee, to interview the owner of Stevarino’s, an Italian restaurant is built around an Irish theme. What makes the food delicious is that the menu items are all homemade. It was nice listening to the owner’s story about growing up in New York City and moving to Florida before settling in northeast Alabama.

Stay tuned to Alabama Living magazine for the finished product. Meanwhile, next time you find yourself visiting attractions such as Goose Pond Colony or Unclaimed Baggage, be sure to stop by Stevarino’s for lunch or dinner and say hi to owner Steve Flynn. To visit their website, click here.

Recently, I was invited to be a guest contributor for a website started by a young mother who offers tips and classes on being a freelance writer or virtual assistant called The Horkey Handbook. The topic of the blog will highlight why someone with Asperger Syndrome should consider a career as either a freelance writer or virtual assistant.

My blog on that website should be out sometime in November. Meanwhile, I must recommend The Horkey Handbook if you are looking for an exciting career, or a way of making extra money but cannot afford to go to college. To visit the site, click here.

With all these different writing assignments on my plate, my goal is not to get distracted by all the bad news that is out there. Even if you do not write as I do, it is important to find a creative outlet to combat all the negative stories floating around the web and airwaves and stay grounded in reality.

What creative ways are you going about combating all the negative news out there? Comment in the section below?
