While I was replying to dear Martina’s intro letter I paid more attention on the whole proccess of writing. What I’m doing in so called “meantime”, when I’m writing a letter. Instead of doing one thing at the time I was chatting with friends on WhatsApp, eating dinner, checking my facebook notifications, going through Instagram pictures, talking with my sister… WHY? WHAT’S FOR?
It rang a bell with me. While I usually focus on the letterwriting process for a while, I don’t sit as long as the letter is finished. I get distracted. A lot. This happens not with social media for me – that later is my challenge when working/writing at the PC – but with other things: my cat, hunger, thirst, looking out of the window or thinking I need to do something particular like sorting some paper or checking some detail about travelling or just about anything.
There is always a zillion of thoughts in my head.
How can we escape? I already have my mobile phone on silent often and I try to be online only twice a day. And only on workdays.
I really wonder what is going on with us.
