One of my goals this year is to write longer stories. So far. So good. I’ve just filed a 3,000 word piece – it is the longest article I’ve ever written. As someone who is used to the comfort zone of 750-800 words, this was indeed a feat. *pats self on back* I admit I struggled throughout the process, but I needed to plow through it and get out of my comfort zone.
What have you done this year to move beyond your comfort zone? Please write to me. I reply to every e-mail. :)
Meanwhile, my latest piece for Science News for Students
just went live. I write about a recent study
that has linked Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to brain volume. It turns out that kids with this condition have smaller brains. The study has set the record straight on ADHD once again: the condition isn’t caused by bad parenting – it’s a disorder of the brain.
Until next week,
