It’s over. It was a good two years, but there comes a time when you have to part company, even when it’s good company. Last night, I said goodbye to my gaming Facebook profile. If I am going to take this writing thing seriously, and if I am going to blog about what it means to be a writer, then I need to spend more time writing. I like the games on Facebook. I’m a gamer heart.
And that is where Facebook became a problem. It was the perfect wedge between my writing and my gaming. I cannot count the number of hours spent farming, baking, shooting, and building up armies. Those hours could have been better split between writing and gaming on the PC or Xbox. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy myself, I wouldn’t have been doing it for so long.
But like all good things, there comes a time when you have to move on. While my gaming profile gave me many hours of entertainment, and many new acquaintances, it did not write my book for me. Hell, it didn’t even help improve my gamer score on Xbox Live. I have my fun, but it’s time to get to work. My time to move on is now. I like Facebook and I really, really like my Xbox.
But I love writing.
