The Plot Thickens & Facebook

Hey, just a quick one. If you've been paying attention, I've been in writing cave. I now have 37,525 words and 101 pages written in next mystery novel. And I've gotten it to the crisis point of the story, which is about halfway. Rewrites and such will fluff the word count out some, but I'm on a mission to keep moving ahead as long as I can. I've got 2 weeks left of my time off from work (except for Tuesday, which is bid meeting, but that's a half day of being tormented by dementors)

And just FYI, I have turned off all notifications from Facebook, so if anyone has been poking me or whatever, I'm not getting any notifications, and I'm not going to be sucked in only to spend an hour or more doing something there. I've got a lot of research to do, and that takes up time as well.

I have found that Facebook takes up too much time. People want to tag me for whatever the reason, it simply comes down to my writing v. play. I need to use my time wisely. So please understand, for now, I'm not going there much. Hopefully my real "friends" will understand this.


  1. Facebook is definitely a time drain!

  2. I'm cutting back on a lot of things. Fewer blog posts, for starters. Only following friends' blogs. Dropping most Facebook groups, except the ones that have proven to generate book sales. And if anyone knows how to deactivate Facebook chat/messenger, please let me know!

  3. It becomes a bit much, having to look at everything, doesn't it? I've only been following a few blogs (friends) too (And one other).
    Norma, let me get back to you on how to turn it off. It's in your settings, somewhere. I was desperate to find it and did. But once you get in there you can turn off facebook posts from showing up on your computer/etc. and you won't get it in your email. Can I email you about it, if you don't find it? Let me know.
    So happy that you come by my blog now and then, too. Happy to have you as my friend!


Hey, did I get you thinking? Want to add a comment? Be my guest and be nice about it. Since I've seen too many "anonymous" users I've taken this option off. Sorry, but you are only interested in selling me something. But my regulars are always welcome!
