Media Fast

Lately I’ve been feeling like I’m suffering from adult onset A.D.D. Ask me to complete a thought, and the little train carrying information inside my brain derails somewhere between Miley Cyrus twerking (I knew it was only a matter of time that my name would be adopted into something totally crazy) and the fall line up on NBC. One thing about writing, no matter the genre, is that putting words on paper takes a sustained effort and concentration; two things I’ve lacked in the past six months. 

I think one of the many reasons for my epic fail (writing-wise) is that I’m constantly seeking out distractions. Between Facebook, the Huffington Post, Netflix (Orange is the New Black is the latest in must-see-tv) and other various forms of media, there are many sirens beckoning my attention. In order to get back on track I’ve decided to go on a self-imposed media fast. No online websites, (not that any single website is bad per se, it’s just that once I open one, it’s hard to stop) no TV, and definitely no Facebook for at least the next five days—Monday through Friday. I wont even be able to post a blog entry since that would entail being online. I’ve got some great article and story ideas going through my mind and I hope that this media fast will help me land them on paper. That said, if you need to get in touch with me—phone, email and texts will be answered.
