I've lost my connection to the world

When I booted up my computer first thing Thursday morning I discovered that I had lost my Internet connection, and I still have no Internet connection. I miss it. I miss it especially because in the span of one day I received pages proofs from a publisher and an invitation to submit to a magazine, messages I did not see until this morning when I checked my e-mail from a client's computer. Lack of an Internet connection has the potential play havoc with my career.

On the other hand, without an Internet connection, I actually spent all of my time at the computer last night writing--not checking the news, not playing poker, not reading Yahoo groups and message boards, and not surfing.

The only negative impact to my writing was the inability to keep handy. I actually had to resort to using a real dictionary.

I'm not sure how soon I'll get my Internet connection back, but the next few days could be both challenging and highly production.
