16 and a half hours in 10 days!
« on: April 14, 2006, 01:57:38 PM »
I can't believe it!

I registered 10 days ago and I've just noticed that I've spent 16 and a half hours on this site!  :o 

Now, if you told me that I could make the time to spend 16 hours on my writing in 10 days I would have said nooo :(, I'm a wife, mother, full time worker, dog walker, house cleaner etc, etc, etc,.........( you know how us women like to lay it on thick ;))

So, now I know - I can make the time.

I'm going to limit myself on the computer :-\ and get stuck in to more writing!

Anyone else noticed this ????

Hi Smiley...ooohhhh yes! I'm not sure if I should admit this, but I have notched up over 5 days on here!! :-[ 

I was going to limit my time on the computer, but I'm addicted. This site is just too friendly.

Anyway, Nick asked me recently to become a moderator....how could I refuse?!! ;)

It's lovely to have so many nice people to chat to. P.S. Bet you can't stay away for long!!hehe. ;D
May all your dreams come true.

Hi Smiley,

Oh dear, I've just noticed that I'm hot on the heels of Ann with 5 days and 39 mins! :(

I just can't keep away :-[

Nick - I think you should maybe think of setting up some kind of Authors Anonymous for all of us addicts :D hee hee

My justification is that "I'm learning!!!" ;)

Glad to hear you're all enjoying being members of Mywriterscircle.com! And sorry if it's taking over your lives  ;)

I think the problem is that the more active you are on the forum, the more people reply to your messages, and the more time you spend reading and replying to them. It's kind of the opposite to a vicious circle!

Hi Smiley,

He he, your last post reminded me of my first:

'Hmm, this seems a bit like joining 'alcoholics anonymous'.."Hello, my name is Dave, and I am a writer"   ;D'

Great minds and all that?  ;D

Dave.

Yeah, Smiley, I am sure noticing my addiction.  However, I am reading more, revising more, about to start writing more, and I am not broke or nuts yet.

Thanks to Smiley and all,
Caliban

I may be up to nearly 17 hours, but before I joined I hadn't written a bean for three years, and now I'm 15,000 words into a story.  Motivation is so important and before this site it was hard to get motivated as I know of no other people interested in writing in the 'real' world.

Happy Easter.  (We even managed to sit round a table and have a decent Sunday lunch - not bad with twin 4 year old boys!)
