I am still doing the Artist's Way.
Last week, I was supposed to do something called "reading deprivation."
I felt that it was asking way too much of myself to forego reading during a chemo week.
This week, I am taking a crack at it. I am allowed to answer emails, read to my son and read the comments on my blog (and, of course, to re-read my own writing).
I've been on starvation diets that are easier than this.
And cheated less.
