There are so many distractions, especially when the computer is also the word-processor, pad of paper, napkin, envelope back, pen, and pencil.
There aren’t as many games available on a pad of paper as you can, with just a tap or a click take out and play. It’s not as easy to wander off and read the latest stories about your favorite sports team. And that funny story about what’s-her-name. You’d probably have to turn a number of pages just to locate. On the Internet, though, it all just jumps out at you.
Writing a book is a form of bleeding and who wants to bleed when you can much more easily empty your brain into an empty container.
