Writer's Camp and Writer's Cramp (AKA Carpal Tunnel)

National Novel Writing Month has just begun. Along with participating, I decided to add in some layers to another story. Plus there’s my website that needed updating. And now … my hands are aching.

I had actually forgotten about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome since I’ve never experienced sore hands before. Worse than uncomfortable bones though, I have painful fingertips. I imagine placing some kind of blister patches on my fingers to protect them from the keyboard. Or I could invest in some ergonomic gel pads for my mouse:

Perhaps eventually I could invest in some voice recording software to audio tape my stories instead.

For me, part of the fun of writing is in the typing though, so I guess I will be soaking my hands a lot this month, and rubbing essential oils on them to ease the pain.
