The 25 best films about being a writer There is nothing less cinematic than the process of writing. It's a solitary, sedentary profession. You sit at a desk, you stare at the word processor of your choosing and you churn out copy. Sometimes you have the luxury of waiting for inspiration to strike; other times, you've got a deadline to hit, and you live with whatever spills from your brain to your fingertips. But what comes in between knocking out your novel or screenplay or article or what have you can be fairly interesting. Also, stumbling across the inspiration to your magnum opus can be a story in itself. Twenty years ago, Michael Chabon's struggle to write his follow-up to "Mysteries of Pittsburgh" resulted in "Wonder Boys." This is just one of many great films about the craft of writing.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
