I liked this post so much Oneanna65, I just had to reblog it. One of the main reasons, is that though my hands and wrists are fairly healthy, I am rewriting the way I write. I writing the second installment to a trilogy I have just started; the fist installment has been published. Alas, I can no longer write the second installment in the way I wrote the first one. So yes, perhaps I am experiencing some writing pain — growing pain perhaps? Keep up the good writing, and I love how you continue to be yourself. Don’t ever stop, it’s such a wonderful gift!
They say writing can be painfully hard. I agree. And I will add: Especially if you have gout. Ouch! 🙂 !
I’m right handed. My right hand hurts from writing and gout related inflammation. Is all swollen.
So I google: “Painful writing” and found some uplifting info.
First of all – they say that most of the writers have some pain in their hand and wrist from writing, even if they are healthy. So I’m feeling little bit better. I’m not suffering alone.
And there is some more:
Roger Angell, writer and editor for “The New Yorker” said: “Writing is hard even for authors who do it all the time”.
Well, I thought that only I have a problem. Thank you Roger!
And Elmore Leonard, American novelist said: “I try to leave out the parts that people skip”.
I think this is brilliant! Thanks Elmore! This can save me lots…
