I’LL JUST CHECK MY EMAILS…

… and suddenly the evening has disappeared in a clickathon of emails, message boards, random links that caught the eye, stories, youtube, i-tunes…

Dave Gorman summed it up nicely, after sitting at his computer to crack on with page 1 of his novel:

“Unfortunately, my computer is connected to the internet. The internet is everything in the whole wide world ever. Now I don’t know about you, but I find everything in the whole wide world ever a little bit distracting.”

It’s funny because it’s true. I’ve taken to writing on my creaky old desktop, which  isn’t connected to the internet, and it’s amazing how much more constructive work gets done.
