a blog devoted to the art, craft, and frustration of writing

a writer, except for my ass, maybe March 24, 2007

I was talking to a writing friend of mine, who bemoaned the fact that her carpel tunnel syndrome would flair up quite quickly – usually within about 1,000 words of writing.

Look at you, she said, you can write for hours at a time without any injury. I have a writer’s temperament too, she continued, pointing out I’m reclusive, somewhat eccentric and particular. I don’t like to leave the house often, and I’m happiest when I have hours and hours with nothing to do but spend quality time with my lap top.

Okay, all that may be true,  but I have one major drawback. My ass. After I injured it bicycling, it starts hurting after about 10 minutes – by twenty, my whole lower back is stiff and sore, and I have to get up. Not very forgiving of long hours in front of a computer!
