Thomas is a champion at pretty much every Facebook game or app there is out there. Both of us get into one, grow tired of it and find a new one. Today though I wonder how much creativity has been lost by us putting time into apps instead of our projects. Did whoever created these things know that when they did it would cause people to be more focused on them than their own lives?
I know we shouldn't be all work and no play and as humans deserve some stress relief, but like most people I tend to play on these far more then I should. If I worked out half as much as I played on my apps than I would most definitely weigh what I should. As our slow season begins(the one where we are not at the rink five nights a week) I question if I'm ready to take on the projects I wanted to get done. I have a new WIP that needs to get out of my head, but instead of outlining it like I should have the last couple weeks I played apps! Now I find myself staring at my first free weekend since October not ready to start writing like I should be.
Is it just us out there that finds ourselves so distracted by these things? Is anyone else willing to admit that they sometimes do these things when you should normally be working?
