The Chair vs the Back
As I have been editing my book (yea me) for the last week I discovered several things:
- I don’t know how to use commas
- I have a problem with apostrophes (plurals and possessives)
- Need to watch when I center a chapter headers – Word will center from the tab
- The old way I learned of typing with two spaces between sentences no longer applies
- And I have a horrible desk chair
So to summarize – the real problem is my desk chair
After a little more than a half hour of working I got up to take a five minute “run” around the room, and I could barely straighten up!
Oui my back!
My “run” turned in to that “old man shuffle” and then I was hesitant to go back to working.
So I popped a pillow behind me and attempted a another round of working. However at my second break time I still struggled to stand up straight. Grumbling about cheep furniture I moved from the chair and desktop computer to the recliner with pillows behind my back and the laptop on a table.
It helped for a bit…
… but I got distracted by the tv.
I have also learned that working in the living room is far too close to the kitchen and I should stay in the workroom upstairs. Instead of walking around for five or ten minutes to stretch and recharge I found myself staring into the pantry or refrigerator as thou within the space a half hour the items would have changed while I was working.
Where are those magic kitchen faeries when you have a sudden craving for some frozen yogurt?
This is the reason I do not keep any junk food in the house. Unfortunately this is also why I plowed through a pound of grapes.
- Bone up on the punctuation rules
- Get a new desk chair
- Stay upstairs when I’m working
Other things I need to work on
- Exercise more to strengthen back and shoulder muscles, not to just to lose weight (although that would help ease the stress on my back as well)
- Sleep, Sleep, Sleep
