Happy Friday! :D

The question got asked this week on one of my emailing lists: how much time per day do you spend on the computer? The second question was, how much would you prefer to be spending?

My response was succinct: "Too much." "Much less."

When you are both a writer and a computer programmer, you spend WAY too much time on the computer. At an 8-4 job, you're there for at least 8 hours. Then there's the time you spend at home on the computer, which is another 1-6 hours right there depending on what else you have going on that evening. That's 8-14 hours PER DAY!

The question then becomes, where do you have outlets for escaping the computer? Or are your outlets ON your computer? Me, I work out on my eliptical when I can, go out to socialize, and on rarer occasions, watch a movie with my kitties. My time on the computer is best served, when possible, either writing, chatting, or playing World of Warcraft.

Tonight I have friends coming over for a potluck/tv series night. I plan to be on the computer as little as possible.

Enjoy your Friday night!

Love & Magic,
