It has not been easy to make the time for my 600 words a day. Again and again, I feel like I’ve run out of time by the end of the day. But again and again, I’ve put my butt in the chair and started writing.
This has actually gotten a little bit easier since last Friday, when the new chair I ordered online arrived. See, my old desk chair was a metal folding chair that I had put a little inflatable camping mat on for a seat cushion. It inevitably lead to my butt going numb, sometimes within half an hour. Lately, it also exacerbated the back pain, which made sitting at my computer to write somewhat less than fun.
The new chair is one of those ergonomic kneeling ones (this one). I opted to assemble it myself because it was a lot cheaper that way. I only got a little help from my husband in assembly, and I’m sure I would have figured out my problem eventually even if he hadn’t said anything…
It is taking some getting used to, but it does not impact my back pain like the old one. And it forces me to sit with better posture. The cushioning is not the best, but the main weird thing about it is my shins tend to get sweaty.
So I’m writing to my goal and working long hours and still getting up for 5am Crossfit. It’s all about setting priorities and committing yourself to keeping them. I made the choice again and again to make my goal instead of sleeping or relaxing or trying to attack some of my huge pile of work from home.
I’ll get this writer thing down yet.
