The ancient Greeks probably would have approved of the author who wrote her 2nd novel using a pedal-powered laptop.
Why? Well, not only was she keeping her mind sound by writing, and her body sound by pedaling, but she was also taking care of her intellectual health (if one considers writing to be related to emotional health) by using a new invention. If we assume that such technology requires a bit of learning in order to use it, and a bit more learning in order to maintain it (as many of us who bought baseline stick-shifts in order to have a simple car that we could do repairs on ourselves if need be: oh, was I the only one who did that?). So, you meet three of the basic criteria the ancient Greeks used for being a well-rounded person: mind, body and psyche.
What do you think, Good Readers, about well-roundedness, pedal-power, and Universal Health Care?
Happy End of NaNoWriMo 2020!
Action Items in support of well-rounded health that you can take right now:
1.) Search for two different ways to make a simple electric generator for a laptop.
2.) Share them with us in the comments, here, please.
3.) Share your thoughts on how practical you find these ideas and whether you would use them,
4.) Write a book, blog post or tweet that uses this technology, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.
