I figure that most of what I'll be doing in the way of notes will be in notebooks, anyway: there are too many things about manuscripts that don't transfer well into a Word document. And I'm thinking that I can go to internet cafes a few times while I'm gone to find out whether anything urgent's shown up in my inbox.
This would be a pretty drastic change for my internet-addicted self, but I think it also might be a good thing. Going cold turkey for a few weeks could at least help me break the habit of checking in with half a dozen sites first thing in the morning and opening my email at least that many times again throughout the day.
What do y'all think?
