Offline October is over. I'll be honest and say that some days I spent more than an hour online - particularly days when I was tired and didn't want to think.
What it has achieved though is being more mindful of the time that I've been online. And also prioritising the time so that it's spent making real connections with people rather than mindlessly surfing and getting caught up in dramas about people I don't know.
I've (hopefully) been more responsive to personal emails. I've made steady progress on my editing, and gotten critiques back to my critique partners more quickly. I was also able to read more books - which is definitely a good thing :)
I've spent more time in the garden, and kept up with the housework more. I even managed to do some decluttering!
So all in all, it was a useful exercise and one I should repeat on a regular basis!!
