Over the past two weeks I've had to make the difficult decision to reduce my time on a few writing email loops. While I didn't spend a whole lot of time on these loops, I still received digests of all the emails in my inbox and felt obligated to read through them. Too often I was tempted to respond to a few posts, taking time away from my writing, researching, and online promotion.
I deleted my membership on four loops, went no-mail on one, and joined a new one that is geared toward the location and time period of my next three novels. Last month, I pulled out of my critique group and switched to beta test readers. You could say I'm going through a transitional season--one that is very necessary--especially with the upcoming holidays around the corner.
What changes have you made to protect your time? What changes have you contemplated?
