How to Ignore the Internet

I love the internet. But I also hate it. What a huge time sucker!
How easy to answer my critique partners' e-mails about their manuscripts rather than think about mine!
How fun to read other people's blogs!
How mindless to look at the status of my friends on Facebook!
Tick. Tick. Tick.

Today I'm trying something new.
See this cute little candle in the heart shaped holder my son gave me for Mother's Day?

I have just lit it.
And I will work steadily on my manuscript as long as it burns.
I wonder how long that will be.

Well? How long was it? ;-)

After 1 1/2 hours, I had to pick my kids up, so it's still a mystery. I will have to try this trick again.
