Tivo is a Writers Friend

There are big distractions for me that seriously cut into my daily fiction writing these days:
  • Work - That whole having to earn a living thing is a real time consumer.
  • Dumb TV Shows - I just cleared a lot of crappy shows off my Tivo.
  • Facebook - It is easy to spend to many hours explaining how the world really works to people.
  • Sleep - 30% of my life is spent on pause and I kinda love it too much.
  • Food - I am trying to stop standing in front of the fridge and pantry. (Lost 31lbs so far!)
I am actually pretty lucky that I don't have a job any more that demands extra hours or work on weekends.

I will still always record and watch favorite shows. I actually use it as a reward system now. No Walking Dead until I finish writing a chapter.

Facebook reduction is easy. Just don't feed the trolls or argue politics. Bigots are my reserved target space now. Plus I read and comment lightly. I never do FB from work, but I do have Twitter up.
