Back Pain and Writing

I've been at home suffering from awful back pain. I was unable to sit down. I had to stand or lay across the bed. I figured it's because I've been sitting at a computer for hours on end every single day. Of course it could also be stress.

But thank God it's getting better. And you know what happens after that. I go right back to what caused my issues in the first place.

Seriously, will there come a time when people have to seek therapy because they can't stay off the internet? Because I'm thinking if I am in terrible pain and I remedy it by laying flat on the bed using the laptop instead of sitting at my desktop, there's a problem.

In other news...

I just did a short story called A Man for Lacie. It's available as a free download from Amira Press' yahoo group. You can get to it if you visit their page here. Here's the blurb.

Lacie Liu is a librarian, with her nose buried in a romance novel at every free moment. She dreams of finding a man who will help her to experience the longings in her heart and body. Her boss, who loves her like a daughter is constantly trying to set her up, with disastrous consequences.

One night, while working late in the library, Lacie meets a man who has the ability to be all that she could ever dream of. They spend one perfect night together and Lacie wakes the next morning longing for more. Her heart cries out to her secret lover and he shows up again to meet her wishes. The difference is, this time, his pleasuring could mean a lifetime of enslavement and death to her lover.

Stay well,

    Maybe you need to invest in an ergonomic desk chair or something?

    Sorry about the back pain. I get it enough myself that I know how awful it can be.

    So many bad health things can result from writing! It's true! Carpel tunnel too! I'm wondering if i'll get cancer from having my laptop on my lap constantly.

    Feel better soon and take care of yourself. I invested in a breakfast tray to put my laptop on when I am sitting up in the bed. It has worked out great.

    Thanks, ladies. I'm feeling much better. I try to get up every once in a while and walk aimlessly until the pain eases again. Exercise helps a lot. Darn, another reason to do it. I'm just glad I can blame Thanksgiving for the weight gain when I see my doctor tonight. Wish me luck!
