I’ve decided to take a break from following social media for several weeks (which I realize is probably amusing considering how I barely use it as is). Although I rarely post anything to social media—specifically twitter—it is something that I do use to follow certain authors, editors, and publishers that work mostly in my genre so I have an idea of what is going on “in the industry” as it were.
As you might imagine that isn’t what most people are talking about now, and it is causing me enough distraction that it is getting in the way of my ability to write (putting it in the most mild way possible).
In more positive news, I’m starting to feel the itch to start editing Book 2 now, which is perfect. The first step to that is re-reading the thing and taking notes on what changes need to be made. I must admit I am half excited and half frightened by the prospect of looking at my writing with fresh eyes.
