Do you have any tricks to keep yourself in the writing chair? After about an hour, I have to get up and move around. Half the time, I don't go back to the writing chair for a while because I am so incredibly stiff and uncomfortable. Getting up and stretching for a couple minutes doesn't always seem to be enough. I look for a distraction, and then get totally distracted for hours.

Have you switched up the chairs? Maybe a recliner, then the sofa, and sitting at the table...

I also write for an hour (or more if on a roll) and then do chores for an hour... switch it up some.

Hmmm... I think I have the opposite problem. If the writing bug bites, I cannot seem to tear myself away from the screen, which results in stiffness, headaches and sore eyes. I would think that it would be beneficial to move around each half hour or so, for your body, eyes, and mind.

Maybe setting a timer to bring yourself back to writing after short breaks would help.

How about standing for a while? A kitchen counter works pretty well for a devised standing desk.

Maybe getting up and doing something, that requires moving around, that you don't enjoy would help. Perhaps that would keep you from getting distracted for hours.
I do think you need to get up and move around every hour. I do-at least. sm

For me, if I feel that the writing is going well, that keeps me going. Sometimes it goes on much longer than it should and I'm sure it isn't good for my eyes! That's why I like having a window right by my desk. If I'm having trouble, then I'm up and down and back and forth. Sometimes I multi-task. So when I am having trouble with some lines, I'll do something else for a while, and then get back to it with new ideas.
