#reverb10 - Day 2 - Writing

"December 2 – Writing. What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it? (Author: Leo Babauta)" too much television for one.  Facebook is a real time sucker.  Yeah, I play the games. Twitter can be a sure fire way to distract one's self.  Finding other stuff to do on the computer...hoping for an email that isn't a newsletter, plug or bill.  My in-box sometimes resembles my snail-mail box.  I'm sure I can find a way to fit laundry, cleaning the toilet and ridding the fridge of the unknown into my writing...hee-hee, I just did.

There are many things I do each day that do contribute to my writing, but right now I can't think of any.  Funny how it is so easy to come up with things that don't.  Which is really what you wanted to know anyway.

Can I eliminate these time wasters from my day?  Uh...probably not.  But I can strive to limit the amount of time I spend doing them...turning off the television once in a while, not planting crops in FarmTown, Farmville and the like.  Stepping away from the computer...

which is what I'm gonna do now as I have some laundry to do.
