Ramble today? Addictions. Not drug or alcohol but social media addiction.
Yes I'm addicted to email--is that considered a social media? Anyway Facebook and Twitter are included. I could play on them for hours. Does it get words on the page? Well yes, just the wrong page!
If I wrote as much on my stories as I do on email, and the others I'd be able to do a book in a week consistently. And if I want to be a success I better learn how to control my habit.
This is a cry out for help, I need an intervention!
How do the rest of you resist the pull? How do you not go to your Facebook to see how many comments you have? How do you not go to Twitter to see all the comments flying? Check out your favorite soap stars and what they're doing. Or what recipe is on Food and Wine?
How do you resist the pull of the email, is their an important email for me? One that can't wait? Maybe I have something important from my agent, I need to check at least every minute in case she needs me. Do you think publisher's clearing house emails these days about the winner? You know I may miss it if I don't check my email.
And what's sad is I've checked email three times while writing this. Am I expecting anything? Not really but it's a compulsion. And I don't want to miss anything while taking a few minutes to write this blog!
So tell me your secrets. Please!
PS- The first places I'll post about this blog is Facebook, Twitter and email my friends! LOL
