Writing time is my favorite part of every day. I easily spend hours and hours lost in my fantasy world.
Fantastic as that is, I am suffering some unpleasant side effects known to many in my profession. The worst of late is a twinge in the right side of my neck.
While not terrible, it is not something I want to become chronic. So I looked up solutions online.
The source of the problem is looking down at my laptop screen all the time. This happens regardless whether I am at a table or desk, on the couch, or even at my makeshift standing desk.

Today I came up with an idea. Recently I purchased a Bluetooth connecting iClever keyboard. Then I added lower tech solutions – a stepstool and a book to raise the keyboard higher, and here you have it:

Note the book is about cat breeds. ~grin~ The paper towel and napkins are because the stepstool regularly sits on the floor and gets stepped on with my dirty sneakers.
What do you think? Do you have any suggestions for preventing neck pain and/or things like carpal tunnel syndrome?
