Procrastinating Song of the Day: “Distraction” by Angels and Airwaves
Good Friday, peeps! We hope you all have a great weekend & a great Memorial Day. With that being said, let’s get this weekend started right, shall we?
Via Paper Hangover (Pam’s group blog–check it out here) we’re getting our Friday Five on!
This week they wanna know:
What are FIVE of your most distracting (procrastination-worthy) things (habits, websites, etc.) on the internet?
As we’ve admitted numerous times on this blog, we have diagnosed ourselves with adult ADHD, therefore this list could be A LOT longer than five things. But for the sake of keeping things short we’ve narrowed our Internet distractions to the following five items:
1.) TWITTER–Omigod. We were actually not willing to get Twitter accounts at one point. Now, I don’t think we could live without it. A day that you don’t see us tweet something, anything (even just a re-tweet) , is a day that zombies have attacked our humble Virginia county.
2.) BLOGS- Right after we made our own blog (we used to have individual blogs at one point) we proceeded to find other writers and readers so that we could be on the up and up about any news, advice, or general support.
3.) Pam: As I mentioned in my post from Monday(here), Publisher’s Marketplace is part of my daily routine. It never hurts to see what’s getting purchased. This way I know where my own writing stands and I get more motivated to finish current WIPs.
4.) Quita: E-mail. LAWD, I check my e-mail once every ten seconds. Hoping that I’ll get that response from an agent that I’ve been waiting for since March/April.
5.) Celebrity Gossip Websites: It’s not always trashy stuff (Pam gave up Perez Hilton’s site at least a year ago), but we do like to keep up with the news on the Hollywooders that we stalk on a daily basis. You know, the likes of Leo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Robert Pattinson, Justine Timberlake, etc.
There, you know how we procrastinate when we should be writing that masterpiece that we’re dying to get out of our heads. What about you–how do you distract yourself on the Internet?
