writers and the computer generation bewitched

Critical and unsound embolic things happen when you sit in front a computer hours and day after day, only your fingers moving on the keyboard. Most writers don’t have a concept of time when they’re writing. Set a kitchen timer on the hour; when it rings, get up and walk around. I was lucky — I survived a pulmonary embolism.

Get up! Move yourself around.
