There’ll Be Some Changes Made
I’ve decided to try and break my Facebook habit. Ever since I got connected to it, my writing has suffered, and to my mind, sending pictures back and forth is social masturbation, not real communication. My intention is to send more time more time working in my real life journal (pen & ink), return to sharing more with the journal group, and generally writing. Hopefully my long-term focus (which I’ve allowed Facebook to destroy) will return.
I’m not going to abandon Facebook, entirely, just limit my time on it to an hour a day. As it is with all habits, I’m expecting to suffer withdrawal symptoms but am hoping they won’t be too severe. I might share longer pieces from other venues on Facebook, as I share the occassional 100 word piece. Later in the process, I’m going to cut back my Facebook interests and contacts, but not immediately. I need to discern which are worth keeping.
