Standing up for Screenwriting

Published on 16 October 2013

Inspired by guru screenwriter, John August, I’ve been working at a standing desk in my day job over the last couple of months. Just a few cardboard boxes stacked on my regular desk. It’s been fantastic! I feel more tired in the evening because it’s more physical activity than being tethered to a chair. As a result I’m sleeping better.

Inspired by my experience at work, I recently adopted the same set-up at home for my passion – screenwriting. Better still, my partner built a DIY standing desk for $22 using IKEA furniture for me. I’ve been writing before dawn when it’s dark outside and – man, oh man! – standing up helps keep me awake. Try standing up for screenwriting. It’ll keep the blood and the creative juices flowing at the same time.
