Why did I do this? Well, I was afraid if I turned on the computer to blog, I would get distracted and not get back to reading. Another thing that happens is that I get so caught up in getting my facts right (like date of publication) that I start looking them up and then my review ends up feeling disjointed. I know that successful writers say to avoid editing until after you finish writing the first draft, but it is difficult to avoid fact-checking when I'm typing my blog post right in the browser. The other day I was even considering writing my reviews in longhand first so I could keep the computer turned off.
Do you ever feel that technology makes it more difficult to write? What distracts you the most from updating your blog?
