Cause all of the stars
Are fading away
Just try not to worry
You'll see them someday
Take what you need
And be on your way
And stop crying your heart out

But the social gain I got out of it was a lot higher.
Which, thinking about it, is the same reason I'm still using Whatsapp ... although my personal values don't align with any of it.
And yes, the game's publisher (blizzard) is a wolflike company with very dirty tactics ... which did almost make me quit playing throughout the past months.
All in all, I'm satisfied with the outcome of my little #writingcamp. It gave me energy to continue pushing at the phd work, and get it over and done with. I'll probably continute to allocate blocks of 2-3 days to get the writing done in the coming weeks. Can't wait to share the consolidated draft folder with my supervisors.
Day 6, which was about 4 hours long. I squeezed about 1000 words and restructered chapter 4 in order to make it tie in better with the claims I made in the introduction of the paper.
Day 5, which basically was just a half day. Got a bit taken away by reading comments, which were written with best intentions by my supervisors but did get my mind going in dark places (my problem). Managed to get through it though and rewrote part of a paper/chapter. Last half day #writingcamp tomorrow, hope to move on where I left off today!
This might not seem like much, but collecting all my phd related writings in chapters and folders to prepare for a full dissertation draft meant a lot to me over the past days.
It still doesn't really matter what the actual result of all this will be, just having it bundled together it what I'm after now.
