I have a question for you: what do you think a writer would miss if she turned off the Internet for six months and did nothing but write? Would she re-enter a changed publishing world? Would all connections with writer friends be severed? Would she miss out on valuable learning experiences? Would it be like starting over when she hopped online again? Would she become a stranger--even to herself?
I don't believe that old adage absence makes the heart grow fonder but I do believe out of sight out of mind.
Would a disconnect be detrimental to her writing, selling, marketing self?
