writers and the computer generation bewitched

Critical and unsound embolic things can happen when you sit glued to a computer hours on end and days on end without moving. (as in you don’t cross your legs — or cross and uncross them constantly.) If you don’t have a conception of time — most writers don’t while they’re writing — set a kitchen timer on the hour; then get up and walk around like they tell you to do on airplanes when you travel long distances. Having just experienced a pulmonary embolism, I’m here to tell you: they are not kidding. I was lucky.

So far.

This time.
