    I believed that sitting comfortably would relax and make you think/write better. But your post has busted some beliefs. I do take breaks, I move around and do some chores and then come back to the laptop. It helps immensely!
    We must see you dance next time when we meet. Dance cannot feature in my writing time because I have 2 left feet! 😀
    And yes, smiles can do wonders not only for the other person but for us too!
    Great pointers, Sulekha.

  2. You took dancing classes! That sounds awesome. It must be fun to watch you blog and dance all at the same time. These are great tips for bloggers, specially when they spend a lot of time sitting down at one place.

  3. This is something I never thought of Sulekha – standing and writing. I do take breaks and multi-task, probably in between these breaks and multi-tasking, I manage to blog. Dancing and me, simply not happening!

  4. Hey Su share some dance moves or better still next time we meet, you are teaching them to us 😉
    I cant imagine writing standing up – it looks too uncomfortable in my head so I am going to take your word for it. I agree with the short breaks and multitasking to not stay glued to the desk!!

    • Jive, cha cha cha 🙂 my brother had started working standing up and told me about it a few years ago but I didn’t think of trying it then. Just thought of doing it now and seeing how I feel.

  5. Not something I had thought of, though once I did a piece on writing habits of famous authors and found some who wrote while standing up – Hemingway, Nabaokov, Lewis Carroll to name some. So that’s proof that you;re right. I like to sit, though my favourite nooks keep changing through the day. Dancing while writing sounds even better.
