There is a secret in the blogging community. Something that long time writers have kept to themselves for millennia. Something that sneaks up on you, catching you at exactly the wrong time. Something so powerful, so shattering, so intrusive that it can break the concentration of SuperBlogger.
Wait for it…
Yes, it is Frozen Tush Syndrome. If you are a writer, if you have joined a blog challenge, or if you are addicted to “Words with Friends” on your home computer, you know what I’m talking about. That numbness that starts around the small of your back, and slowly turns your nether regions into stone, or wood, or calcified Silly Putty.
As far as I know, there is no true ‘cure’. No magic potion. I think it is what you call an ‘occupational hazard’. Kind of like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – but I haven’t heard of anyone having to wear a cast or a sling on their backside to alleviate the strain.
Your rolly chair, and the computer, will be waiting when you are ready to write again.
