When the internet takes over your life
I have to admit, I couldn't live without the Internet. I honestly don't know how people survive without it. I use it for everything from research, to directions, to looking up a movie. But, the thing is, I'm a little addicted to it. LOL. I'm really bogged down with work right now. I had edits, agent requests, and have a deadline in November. I have so much to do and so little time yet I keep finding myself browsing the Internet! I've suddenly become addicted to Facebook. I hated it for the longest time. I fought tooth and nail against my Facebook account and now I can't stay away. I'm browsing more blogs than usual, minimizing my book every few paragraphs and "looking something up real quick and then I'll get right back to my writing". The thing is, it's hard to stop. I'm on the computer to work so it's really hard not to click on that big blue e.
I'm Twittering, myspacing, yahoo grouping and yes, a lot of it is for my writing but where do we draw the line? How do we do what we need to do online and cut it short to get the writing done we need to as well?
What do you do to limit your Internet time? What are some of your time-sucking hot spots?
