What I've learned

Maybe it's all the snow outside but I can't believe that Easter is almost here.

This year I decided to give up Facebook for Lent and I can't believe that I'm coming to the end of that.

Here is a list of things that have changed in my writing since Lent started.

1. I have more time to write.

2. I start writing earlier in the day.

3. I write for longer.

4. I have more "found' time that I use for writing. (a half hour here, twenty minutes there, it all adds up)

5. I go to sleep earlier.

6. I have more time to read.

After Easter I'm not sure if I'll give up Facebook entirely but I definitely want my life to be more writing and less Facebook. I'm thinking of only looking at the site once or twice a week.

What about you? How often are you on Facebook or other social media? Do you feel like it's stealing from your writing time?
