FEATURE: How To Manage The Stresses In The Writing Industry By Stan Popovich Stress and anxiety are common for many writers. As a result, here is a list of techniques that a writer can use to help manage their daily stresses and anxieties. Sometimes, we get stressed when everything happens all at once. When this happens, a person should take a deep breath and try to find something to do for a few minutes to get their mind off of the problem. A person could take a walk, listen to some music, read the newspaper or do an activity that will give them a fresh perspective on things. When facing a current or upcoming task at your writing job that overwhelms you with a lot of anxiety, divide the task into a series of smaller steps and then complete each of the smaller tasks one at a time. Completing these smaller tasks will make the stress more manageable and increases your chances of success. Remember that no one can predict the future with one hundred percent certainty. Even if the thing that you feared does happen there are circumstances and factors that you can’t predict which can be used to your advantage. For instance, you are at your place of work and you miss the deadline for a writing project you have been working on for the last few months. Everything you feared is coming true. Suddenly, your boss comes to your office and tells you that the deadline is extended and that he forgot to tell you the day before. This unknown factor changes everything. In dealing with your anxieties at your writing job, learn to take it one day at a time. While the consequences of a particular fear may seem real, there are usually other factors that cannot be anticipated and can affect the results of any situation. Get all of the facts of the situation and use them to your advantage. The more control you have over your stresses and anxieties, the better off you will be in the long run. Take advantage of the help that is available around you. If possible, talk to a professional who can help you manage your fears and anxieties. They will be able to provide you with additional advice and insights on how to deal with your current problem. By talking to a professional, a person will be helping themselves in the long run because they will become better able to deal with their problems in the future. Managing your fears and anxieties takes practice. The more you practice, the better you will become. Biography: Stan Popovich is the author of "A Layman's Guide to Managing Fear Using Psychology, Christianity and Non Resistant Methods" - an easy to read book that presents a general overview of techniques that are effective in managing persistent fears and anxieties.

Tell us about yourself: I am a Grandmother, nurse practitioner, and currently the Executive Director of a Day Care Center for Adults with disabilities.

I am a vegetarian and meditate daily. When was the book released?: First publication was 12/09. Second publication was 2/10 and Third publication was 5/11. Give us an overview of your book. The book relates my experiences as the secretary to the late Dr. J. Allen Hynek, the Father of UFO/Alien research, my personal meetings with aliens, the arrival of Planet X , government cover ups, the spiritual enlightenment we are experiencing now, and how to prepare for the coming poleshift. What inspired you to write this book? I see my “Mission” as helping to wake up humanity in order to prepare for the coming poleshift and spiritual ascension. I am only doing what I came here to do. How is your book different from other books in this genre? My personal association with Dr. J. Allen Hynek who was well known and respected as an astrophysicist and world authority on UFO/Alien research. Where can people buy your book?

I first self published with Author House ( cost about $8,000, with some publicity). Pay whatever you have to in the beginning for professional editing!

If published traditionally, tell us how you benefited: About a year later, I decided to go with a private publisher for more personal attention to the marketing. Can you share one of your marketing successes with us? Give away the book now and then.
