I tell myself I'll spend only a few minutes catching up on friends' blogs, leaving comments, checking my e-mail. Before I know it, the day and/or evening has disappeared. Each time the process takes longer than expected, because once I get started I'm into the experience and don't want to stop.
So, I've decided on certain days, if I'm to get anything done, I'll have to ignore the tempting social media/networking distractions I so love and instead concentrate on getting my novels finished.
Today, I'm going to concentrate on whipping my mystery, Killer Career, into shape. After I've spent a decent amount of time on that project, then I won't feel guilty if I make the rounds again and visit all my friends.
What about you? Do you sometimes get trapped in socializing? How do you curb your appetite?
