I've been doing The Artist's Way -- again (the first time was in 2003, when Ross was four years old). If you've followed this creative recovery program before, you know about week 4: the dreaded week of reading deprivation. You are supposed to NOT READ for a week. One of the points of the exercise is to discover how much time you spend reading, instead of doing your own creative thing.
Not only do I waste a lot of time reading, I also spend way too much time on the internet. Which is a form of reading, of course. So: I will not be reading blogs or my email this week, and not writing here, either. In fact, I'm going to stay offline entirely (unless I crack ;-} ). It'll be a good creative challenge. I hope to spend a lot of time at the sewing machine or with a crochet hook. See you next week!
