Published authors' drinking and eating habits

My friend Sam Autman, out in NYC, sent me a very interesting article from the New York Observer talking about the dark side of being published. Basically the article said that a lot of the authors become very large (physically) and isolated and end up eating way too many Entenmann's pastries because they don't have time to manage their health. They interviewed a nice assortment of authors for that piece. After reading that article, I've decided to eat more holistically and start marathon training again.

And I rejoined the gym after two years of sitting, crouched over books and submissions at Columbia. Powerful article, very compelling.

Grateful for this article, because I'm back on my exercise kick and not trying to eat garbage quite so much.
