Writing and Publishing

During my search in BlogSpot users' profiles, for Bloggers with an industry of Publishing, I noticed the Arabian users mix between publishing and writing.


A lot of Arabian writers, novelists, authors & poets chose publishing as their field, not writing. I don't know why!


Maybe because BlogSpot didn't put category of writing or literature in industry's options.

The news talks about a study from American University of Michigan by Professor Ethan Kross.


The study says: love-sickness & breakup-pain affect in the human body equally like the physical pains.
