The readers out there already know that I have a list of Chicago pubs, but now I have created a separate page for the literary publications of Chicago as well. There are more lit pubs in Chicago than I previously thought and I bet there are a few more, so if you happen to know of any please don’t hesitate to contact me.
Lately I’ve noticed that I’ve been wasting a lot of time watching television and reading things on random web sites. What is it with me? I need to re-focus my energy. I realized that the sites eating up most of my time are the social networking sites of course. Die Facebook, die. I’ve also been sucked into the world of LinkedIn and Regretsy. Here’s how a normal day in my life breaks down:
Caring for my son - 10 hrs – 42%
Client work and writing, this also includes reading 3 hrs - 13%
Social Networking sites - 2 hrs - 8%
Cleaning - 1 hr - 4%
Sleep - 8 hrs - 33%
Something has to give or I have to give up something. The only place I can see gaining more time to devote to my craft is getting rid of my accounts on these awful social networking sites. I thought I was stronger than this! I really did.
