Higher math

1 unsolvable novel problem + 1 hour on the treadmill = 1 breakthrough

I need to remember the results of this equation.

    now all you need is a keyboard built into the treadmill. i’m surprised someone hasn’t thought of it yet… or a dvd player built in. I like a big screen.

    It’s showers for me. Whenever I’m really stuck at writing, I take a shower, and then the problem works itself out. Then I just need to remember things until I can get to the computer. Back when I had a gym, the exercise bike used to work pretty well too.

    Congrats on showing the problem that you’re the boss.

    Yup. I do some of my best coding/design work in the kitchen and bathroom. (=

    I’m so amazed you can stay on that thing for an hour.

    Are you reading/listening to something?

    Sure beats 1 unsolvable drawing problem + 2 hours blogging instead = 3 years unfinished work.

    Hmm, that actually seems like a fairly equitable trade-off…sweat off a pound or two and make a big leap forward on the novel. A complete no-loss proposition.

    Now, how many extra hours would it take on the treadmill for an entirely new book? ;^)

    I’m getting stuck here also and some idiot next to me feels like she’s my personal editor. Nah, she’s doing a pretty messed up job at it. j/k
    yeah well, this idiot just said she has a “name” i disagree.

    oh my god, she’s even correcting what i’m writing here. what a bitch!

    this is the “idiot”. my name is claudia, and i’m no idiot. if i was an idiot, do you think i’d be correcting her story, no huh?

    dumb! she’s just giving her stupid comments about. (The bitch swears i listen to her, hehe)

    I gotta end this she’s trying to start and argument over this comment.

    Yahoo! Thank you for proving my girlfriend wrong!!
    She kept telling me that working out will give me muscles and not brains… and that I shouldnt spend so much time in the gym….
    I should show my girl this. She loves you, and now, she’ll let me go to the gym for an extended peroid of time. And maybe she’ll join me.
