I cannot handle spicy food so I won’t be trying this at home. But I wonder what this would look like if you, as a writer, tried this while writing a particularly emotional scene for your book? Could you get through it without stopping? These amazing musicians from the Danish National Chamber Orchestra gave it their best.
Thank you to Trissina Kear for the tip!
Uh, no. I don’t do spicy foods either.
When I write an emotional scene, I try to make sure I’m listening to some cheery, uplifting 60s surf music. It helps keep pathos from turning into bathos.

I can only hope those wind players weren’t using their good instruments! You shouldn’t eat ANYTHING and then blow into a flute, or a bassoon, etc. — but this video showed that training and discipline can prevail over misery.

Beautiful music, pain and persistence…sounds like the life of a Christian writer to me. LOL
