Climbing imaginary hills whilst writing imaginary worlds (blog post)

I’ve been watching HaikuJaguar‘s talk of her walking desk with quite a bit of interest. I have a desk job, a desk second-job (writing), and, in the winter especially, sedentary hobbies (reading, TV).

Space & money constraints mean such a thing isn’t in the cards for me right now. But I have this lovely tablet I bought for myself for Black Friday (Samsung Galaxy 4.0 Nook) and this lovely keyboard for said table my parents bought me for Christmas….

…and it works. I wouldn’t want to try balancing anything bigger on the treadmill’s magazine rack, and it only works on two treadmills at my gym (one of which is out of order perpetually), but I got on the right treadmill yesterday and wrote 569 words in 30 minutes. Not my top rate, surely, on either writing or calorie burning. But fun!

It’s a case where multi-tasking actually does good. I like it. 🙂

Now if only I could write while I drove…

  1. This is why I want a good audio transcription app. More practically, driving is a good time for /reading/ – audiobooks, audiolessons.

      • I’ve used Dragon and the Windows audio control program, both of which get progressively more annoying the more tired/casual you are. I don’t think it’s quite there yet – it’s in the early stages, like pre-Kindle ebook readers. One of these days someone is going to come out with one that just works and it’s going to be amazing.
