A lot of people ask how I am able to sit and write for long periods of time and while I am very used to it after 15+ years, the answer is that I always try to maintain good posture while I am working.
There are many basic tips I have learned over the years that will not only improve your writing, but allow you remain comfortable while you do it. Sometimes I will work for eight hours straight, so I promise these are tried & true!
A few of my key posture tips include:
- Sit square to the table
- Keep one foot on the ground
- Use a chair with a back
- Make sure your shoulders are down
- Stay within your comfortable writing zone
- Keep your non-writing hand firm on the desk
Along with your posture, something as simple as finding the right chair and table to practice on can make a big impact on your writing, so it is crucial to find what is comfortable for you.
In this video, I demonstrate these tips and explain how better posture will allow you to write more comfortably, smoother, and achieve straighter lines.
