Hi, it’s me again.
Today is the last day of my media fast.
I am not as excited as I thought I would be when I started. I am still trying to determine how to work things out in the future so that media is never again as overreaching in my life as it was before this. I suppose you could equate it to a diet ending. You can’t go back to eating all the same foods like you did before, or the diet will be useless.
In other news, I am approximately 1/4 of the way done with the novel. The past two days have been slow writing days due to some family trouble, but, I have been pondering things in my head. I hope to finish at least another chapter today, providing circumstance doesn’t interfere again.
In the end, I think the time away from all things entertainment was very helpful. It helped me adjust my focus and get down to the business of writing. If I find myself slipping into the rut again, I can always go on another media fast–after I see Meet the Robinsons that is. I now shall return to the work and hope this finds you in good spirits.
PS – I think the forlorn chair has forgiven me now that I’m using it part of the time. At the very least, it hasn’t kicked me out of it. I shall have to post a picture one of these days.
