Yes. Water. It seems innocent enough. We drink it. We shower in it. We bathe in it.
Ah, but that is where the problems start. Soaking. You can waste a lot of good time soaking in a bath and it can lead to things like soaking in a hot tub or even swimming for pleasure.
When things really get bad is when you start discovering the other adventures water can provide.
Snorkeling (which can lead to believing you're a fish and leaping about in the water).
River floating (which can lead to socializing and goofing off).
Kayaking (which can lead to lengthy adventures at sea).
Those are just a few of the ways water can steal away hours and even days of productive writing time. My advice to you? Avoid it. Even showering could be considered a gateway activity. Sure, you might drive away friends and family with the stench if you don’t shower, but that will give you even more time to yourself for writing. Win all around.
