I am addicted.
I am online (Facebook, Twitter, Blog, Gmail, Pinterest) FAR too much. It's really ridiculous. I should be much farther along in my revisions than I am, and have read many more books than I have so far this year. Yet, when I'm bored, what do I do?
Dink around on the internet.
I hereby pledge to spend only TWO hours a day online. Rather than the fifty-some-odd I have been doing. (Wait, not that many hours in a day... see? My brain is fried...). When I am bored, I will read a book, do my chores, or EDIT my manuscript. Those are my options. Because if anything is EVER gonna happen with my writing career, it will involve me being diligent and meeting goals.
Speaking of which, I should set a date for when I'll try to have all these edits done. Deadlines help me a lot. Lets say April 30th. (Betas and CP's, that means I need your notes ASAP please!) By the end of April I will have revised from all beta and CP critiques, and gone through on my own to polish and cut. That way, by May 2nd (my Mommy's birthday) I can send it to my Mom and let her read it. Which, in the entire year I've been working on it, she hasn't gotten to do yet.
What helps you be productive? I know we need to build a platform and such, but the writing has got to take precedence, right? Is it just me, or is everyone some level of social networking junkie?
Scale of 1-10 (10 being completely addicted), I'm seriously at like an 8.5...
