Facebook. Twitter. Shelfari. YouTube. Goodreads. LinkedIn. E-mail loops. Blogs.
Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah…
Sometimes social networking is just too much of a good thing.
Don’t get me wrong; most of the above networks are an important (and fun!) part of my daily routine. However, I remember what life was like before they came along.
Back then, I wrote short stories for the confession magazines on a used Smith-Corona word processor. And honestly, my head was filled with less mind clutter, and I got more actual writing done.
So in honor of the first day of spring, I’m taking a head-clearing, weekend break from it all.
I’ve turned off my regular cell phone and iPhone. And once this post is written, the MacBook goes into its case.
My new Liberty of London for Target tote (click here to read more about my obsession with this adorable line) is packed with my Alphasmart, noise-canceling headphones and a snack. I’m headed to Starbucks at daybreak to write.
That’s it. Just write.
Soooo, do you sometimes find social networking to be a bit overwhelming????
