I’m taking a Facebook and Twitter sabbatical
I’m taking a sabbatical from Facebook, Twitter, email alerts and other wonderful but distracting digital chores. The idea is to spend more time with my family of writing projects. I hope to be posting some of the work in progress on this blog, but most of the labour will take place behind the scenes until it appears in the form of publications.
So far I haven’t experienced any of the withdrawal symptoms reported in the press for similarly heroic efforts. In fact, I feel joyfully unburdened, although I should add that (a) it’s only been 6 days, so withdrawal may still hit me in the coming days or weeks, and (b) I haven’t given up on the Internet, fate forbid; I’m only taking a break from some of my Internet haunts.
