You know how when you make a big decision that hadn't planned on making and you instantly know it's the right decision?
Quitting checking my rankings and sales and reviews yesterday had more impact than I thought it would. It sort of reminds me of when I quit smoking years ago: I suddenly had all this free time on my hands and free hands on my time. I never knew that so much of my day was made up of that.
Anyway, I can tell this is the right thing to do. Just concentrate on the writing.
Makes me wonder how much free time I'd have if I stopped using the internet or watching TV?
The days would certainly be longer. A life extension, so to speak. Especially if you're the type of person I am, who is perfectly happy to be by myself.
But no...the other day I woke up and my wifi was down and boy, did the morning feel empty.
So it's all good in theory, but I don't think I have that kind of fortitude.
Besides, I'd probably just use up all that free time reading -- which would be better than internet and TV browsing, perhaps, but would still take up all the time.
Anyway, I feel like I have writing time in front of me, and that's a great thing.
