So, this is the week we are supposed to give up reading I do alot of studying and am not sure if that counts, what do you all think?

I am behind on MP because I have been sick


I am trying to get back on track though. This will be an intense week.

Is anyone there? Did the reading deprivation scare everyone off?

I'm here! My internet has been out most of the week, so I'm scrambling trying to catch up while I have access!!

I cannot do the reading deprivation. I can't. Really. I tried for literally four hours, and I was going mad. I could give up TV, I don't watch much at all, but no reading? Anything? Can't do it. Between the newspaper, my daily devotionals, magazines I get, it's too hard. But, I have been doing my morning pages! And I feel not an OUNCE of creativity seeping from me.

Well, I fell off the wagon about reading, but it was not a novel, it was nonfiction (does that count? )

I will plug along though.

I am determined to flow with my writing again.

It just hasn't been very active this week, I was wondering what people have been up to.

We could do another week of this chapter, thoughts?

The reading ban is what kept me quiet this week.

I couldn't bear another week of this chapter. The reading deprivation was brutal on me. I felt just as grouchy, icky, and unkempt without reading as I would have felt during a week without a toothbrush.

I don't feel like I gained much through the reading deprivation. Though I did morning pages each day, they didn't come easily and I found myself struggling to find anything in my head worth writing. My fiction writing also hit a dead stop. I think my brain just needs a constant flow of words -- in and out -- to be productive.

I'm going to read on to the next chapter tonight and I'll be working on the 5th week's exercises through this week, but I'll drop in on whatever thread is active this week.

I am afraid I failed the reading deprivation I did stop reading any fiction though, and magazines, so partially.


Happy reading
