unplugged


It doesn't happen often, but yesterday I kept myself off the laptop for a big chunk of the day. In fact, I offered it up willingly to [livejournal.com profile] bikernurse for the viewing of online streaming of our shows so we could start getting caught up before the end of the season.

For the first time in a long time I hauled out one of my notebooks, got out the lap desk, and wrote longhand. I didn't choose one of my WIPs, for reasons I'm not quite sure about myself, but instead wrote something completely new in an SGA 'verse I'd created for [livejournal.com profile] sga_santa last December.

There's something immensely satisfying about filling up notebook pages with writing. Maybe because it's more tangible than a Word document. Of course, that high doesn't last through the transcribing process because the page count halves by the time it's all typed up so I try to enjoy it while I can.

Clearly I need to disengage from the interwebs more often. Writing on the laptop can be good, but I don't get a lot done at any one time because I'm e-mailing, chatting, checking random things on Facebook or Pinterest or YouTube, or playing Poppit. Although next time I unplug I'll let my friends know first so they don't think I was abducted by aliens, since I'm normally an online presence most of the day. (Sorry, Sharon and Becc!)

Today's mission: type up the fic I wrote yesterday and then contemplate what else needs to be written long hand. Big Gay Novel, I'm lookin' at you!
