So I'm working my way through Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way.
Which was going fine until I hit week 4. Which started for me on Sunday. Week 4 involves Media Deprivation. Where the idea is to remove words (I write as a hobby. I live for words) and all this other stuff to get you, in the end, to play.) I made it almost 3 full days until I caved and went back to social media. Oh, I still have the TV off and will likely complete the week there. I was allowed work related access and you know checking email to make sure that nothing critical like bills came through. Or something that (as happened) I needed to sign related to my mother's care.
No, I didn't clean my house. And I didn't want to. I'm a slob. Sue me. I did do a bit of work on the great rewrite/restructure etc of my novel (the one that won't go away). But my form of communication is on the interwebs. I don't want to call someone (I really dislike phones). And after a day of work, I don't want to be around people and I don't want to 'play.' Okay, there was a bit of play in there. I got some coloring done. I'll post that in the colorists blog.
So my new mantra is you can pry my media out of my cold, dead hand.
