For a writer the ability to ferret out information on almost any topic with just a few clicks on the keyboard is invaluable, but it comes at a terrible price. At least it does for those of us who are information junkies. I find that entirely too much of my time is spent in finding out more and more about less and less, leaving me almost no time to do any actual writing (hence the long interval between the previous post and this one). Every branch can lure me off the track with interesting, but probably not useful for the current project, information. What can a writer do to use the internet for needed research and still not be seduced?
