I have WordPress, Gmail, Twitter, LJ, Pinterest and Tumblr open in tabs all at the same time. It makes me wonder where should I waste my time on? I miss the community in LJ where I used to share detailed accounts of my day. Twitter is like my news source, in exchange for reading smelly broadsheets (bad habit, I know). Obviously, I’m trying to discipline myself through WordPress where I try to just simply write.
The Internet has been a nice getaway from all the corporate writing I do daily. My friend laughs at me for writing during my free time, but writing freely gives me a sense of relief and a different kind of freedom I miss when doing client-based writing. Plus it removes all the clutter in my head – that alone is truly priceless.
