I got rid of Facebook a while ago, twitter as well. I remained away from Facebook but drifted back to twitter. I’m leaving again.
It’s a terrific tool and some people work it really well. For me, it’s mainly a distraction, a time-stealer that I allow to freely access my horde of daily minutes – to my detriment. Thus, I’m departing it again.
I will not, however, be leaving Codex. This site continues to be invaluable for helping me persist with my writing. There are frequent writing challenges, numerous writers at all levels of expertise and knowledge. It is a wonderful community and, if you meet the criteria to join, I recommend coming aboard.
As we’re past the halfway point of the year I took look at my statistics for the year. I’ve made 72 submissions of 32 different stories and poems to 56 different markets. I’ve had 3 acceptances.
One of the things I hope to do with my reclaimed time is more reading. I have a welter of books to start, or finish. I’m starting tonight.
