If you’re a keyboard jockey like me, you know about the neck, back, and wrist pain that can sneak up on you if you’re not careful. Too many hours contorted by a less-than-ergonomically-ideal set-up can leave you writhing in pain and cursing the gods for making you want to write at all. Ever.
That’s why I just had to share this awesome little video that I discovered on Facebook via writer and creative coach Sharon Abra Hanen. Sharon is a delightful woman whom I met at a Grub Street class a year or two ago. I’m pretty sure she loves writers as much as she loves writing (hence the coaching part of her business). Plus, she has an entire page on her website dedicated to “chocolate!” … so I pretty much think she’s brilliant and take anything she shares as gospel.

Here’s to happy – HEALTHY – writing. Get those ergonomics working for you!
