The Writer’s Glove Story – Benjamin Sobieck
I’m a writer best known for non-fiction works like The Writer’s Guide to Weapons (Writer’s Digest Books), a renowned blog about writing weapons in fiction and numerous best-selling thrillers. You can check out my entire catalog on my official writer website or on Amazon. That’s in addition to the work I’ve done as an online editor and product manager for a publishing company (read more on that here).
It’s no surprise that I spend a lot of time typing at a keyboard. I dreaded every winter in Minnesota when the temperature dropped and my hands became cold and stiff. Not only was this uncomfortable, but it affected my productivity. So I did what a lot of people do: I lit a candle next to my keyboard and warmed my hands throughout the day.
This wasn’t the safest option, and I started smelling like Ocean Breeze wherever I went, so I searched for a glove that not only kept my hands warm but also didn’t slow my typing.
I was disappointed to find nothing but gimmicks and a whole lot of fingerless gloves. Maybe those fingerless gloves work for you, but if you’re like me, you question the point of buying a glove that doesn’t cover the very things I need to keep warm in the first place: the fingers!
I didn’t get mad, though. I started tinkering. I went through several rounds of prototypes, manufacturing partners and materials. I finally settled on what is now known as The Writer’s Glove.
It made a huge difference. Not only did The Writer’s Glove keep me comfortable at the keyboard during those cold months, but my productivity went way up. I wasn’t messing around with a candle or refreshing a hot cup of coffee. I was getting back to work, and I barely knew the gloves were there.
I’m thrilled to offer The Writer’s Glove to you. Whether you find your typing slowing down during those cold months, work in an office where the air conditioning leaves your hands chilled or just want a keyboard glove that finally gets it right, I’d be happy to send you a pair right away.
