I just deleted my Twitter account. If you don't Twitter, I urge you to look away quickly when it comes into your peripheral vision. It's a fully addicting site that allows you to send out what you hope are pithy comments and links to other bloggers. It's hilariously fun, but it possesses the magical power to turn 20 minutes in front of the computer into 2 hours. I had to look away.
In fact I'm kind of feeling like I should stop blogging altogether. With blogging, what was once a semi-social, writing exercise/outlet for me is sort of morphing into this sticky, real life thing. It's producing the same kinds of social situations that I hid from in blogland. Or more accurately, the ones that I wrote about in a funny way so I could laugh them and be done with it in real life. So to have blogging start to produce these same kinds of stressful social situations is a juxtaposition that is making my head hurt.
I think I may wrap up the conference details in another post - if for no other reason then to point you towards some awesome online writers - then take a break for awhile. See if not writing online ends up making me implode or if it's a good thing.
