It must happen to anyone who sits in an office chair for long periods of time.
Or is it just my ageing bottom that complains if it has to take my weight for hours on end?
Whilst I write, research or socialise, the time I sit there is regulated by my back-side; a tyrant bum that forces me up and out.
If I am absorbed with something I’ll lie on the bed (luckily I work from home) with the laptop on my knees, but my typing speed is much slower this way. If it’s a nice day I’ll don my helmet and take to my bike, where, with no pen in hand, inspiration is sure to flourish; memorising a nice phrase or a plot progression, I rush back and take up position once again. Can we get to the bottom of this? Is it
just me or is there such a thing as a writer’s bottom?
