This weekend is busy - like they all are, kind of - but in a good way. Yesterday, we went to a flea market another town over and then had dinner & drinks with friends, today some other friends are coming over so we can finally finish season 5 of Game of Thrones (yes, I know, we're behind).

The new job is working out well and, though my commute is only a third of what it used to be and I have more "free" time on my hands, I barely have the energy to write or read. I do way more writing in my new job (press releases and e-mails, mainly), so I'm still getting used to this sapping off my creative juices.

I've also noted that my online behaviour has changed, what with mobile devices and everything. A couple of years ago, I had a really old TV and so, in order to watch Netflix etc., I had to switch on my computer. The moment I got home, I opened my laptop and spent the evening surfing, writing and watching TV. When I come home now, I a) have a boyfriend that I talk to (vs. living alone before) b) have a proper TV and a connected PS4 that gives me Netflix and Amazon on a big screen. And I rarely switch on the computer anymore (because I also game on the PS4). It's not only changed my usage of devices, but also how often I actually post on my journal and how often I write. To me, that feels strange. I wish there was a proper (Android) app that would allow me to post and comment here - it would make my appearances more frequent, I suspect. At the same time, I will have to finally kick myself in the butt to get back my writing groove.

Does anyone of you have any tips how to get back into writing more? And have you experienced a shift in your use of devices as well?

Yay for the new job working out well.

I sometimes write on my phone through google docs or dropbox, but I hate typing on my phone. If I'm away from my laptop, I tend to default to writing in a notebook so I can transfer the words later.
