Why writing is like running

Second blog post of the year - woohoo! Fortunately I run more regularly than I blog. I've had this thought rumbling round for a while: what do running and writing have in common? I'm due to start the Advanced Creative Writing module with the OU in October so this thought had popped to forefront of mind.

I think we can safely say that I am never going to win an Olympic medal with running, but that doesn't stop me, I still go out and put in the miles. Maybe not as many as I'd like to and I'm often trying to think of ways of trying to increase my mileage. Maybe just going out and running will do the trick.

So why don't I take the same attitude to writing? Perhaps it's time I did.
