Writer’s Butt

Most people worry about writer’s block. I don’t believe in writer’s block. Doing writing practice knocked that out of me long ago. I’ve learned to sit down and just start writing. It took some time because I couldn’t write at the keyboard at first. I had to put the words on paper to make them make sense. I still do that at times when the words just won’t mush correctly. But practicing my writing on a daily basis makes it so I can usually always come up with something to write.

That brings up another issue.

Like today. I’ve been writing since around 8 a.m. this morning. It’s 7 p.m. at night. I got a lot done, even caught up on old projects. But now I’m not worried about writer’s block, I’m more concerned about getting a bad case of Writer’s Butt.

If I don’t start getting out to exercise instead sitting typing all day — well you get the visual.

Imagine that you spent the last 20 days writing for 10 hours a day. You forgot to get up and exercise. What are you worried about now? Writer’s block or writer’s butt? Sorry, you have another 20 mintues to practice then you can go for that walk!
