weekly writing coach: wristed

Thanks to Lifehacker, here's a great, short video every writer should bookmark--it's a series of short wrist and tendon stretches to help you avoid repetitive stress injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome. As one who takes lessons from her guitar studies and applies them to writing, I'm especially glad these lessons come from a percussionist.

This shouldn't just be a weekly exercise if you are keyboard-prone. Take a break once an hour during long stints at the computer and run through these stretches--they really help. You'll write better, I promise.  Want to do more? Check out the rest of the ergonomic upgrades recommended by Lifehacker.
