Today I tried to explain bum glue (the substance and the blog) to Kyle, a writer friend. “Bum to chair,” I said gleefully.

He looked glum. “If only it were that easy.”

I nodded. I’ll freely admit that writing involves much more than just keeping my behind in the Aeron™. But if my behind is not in the Aeron™, the chances of increasing my word count slide from scarce to nil. At least Bum Glue improves my odds.
