Just read an article that reported the average office worker checks e-mail 50 times a day! They also IM 77 times daily. When do they have time to work?
What work? When do they have time to play online games, text and call friends on their cell phones, tweet and check Facebook?
With all this going on, companies are probably paying overtime to get anything accomplished. Employees play all day, look like they're working by checking e-mail when someone walks by, then get down to business at a 50% self-given raise until it's time to meet someone for drinks or dinner (something they can afford with their inflated paychecks.) Do I sound bitter? You're darned right I'm bitter. The economy's in the toilet and I can't even find a job opportunity to try for - and I work when I should and save play for later.
Now that my rant is over, it's time to ask how your social life affects your writing life. Do you take phone calls or let them go to voicemail? Do you play games on Facebook when the words won't come?
That article went on to what happens to your brain when your train of thought gets derailed. It's scary.
