The online journal Contentious has published the first part of "an overview of what online editors do, how they do it, and why it matters," written by graduate student Alysson Troffer. The first part covers "new skills and strategies, the role of the online editor, and editing nonsequential content. The second half will be published the week of August 23." Here's the address:
My reaction was: I wish I'd published this first!
We all know we should take breaks, but we get busy and don't. Time to break (sorry) a bad habit and form a good one. There are lots of articles, books and Web sites that provide information on appropriate exercises (mainly different types of stretching), some of which can be done less conspicuously than others. Learn what to do and then, more importantly, do it! A lunchtime exercise session is fine, but you (and I, and everyone else who sits at a desk and types a lot) need that every-hour-on-the-hour five-minute stretch break.
