Whilst everybody else has barbecued belly pork and chips for supper this evening. I am having this.
Actually I am less upset about missing out on belly pork, which I absolutely adore, than I thought I would be It was a delicious meal and that whole plate adds up to 510 calories. Not bad eh?
I’m doing the 2 day fast, partly to lose weight and partly as a personal discipline. It hasn’t turned out to be anywhere near as hard as I thought it would be. The knowledge that it’s only one day at any one time makes it quite bearable. Tomorrow normal service will always be resumed.
Writing is a bit like that. One day at a time. Open the screen or open the notebook and every now and then nothing happens. A fast day. But the next day doesn’t have to be the same. Writers’ block shouldn’t be an endless diet. Look at it as a short fast between normal service and it isn’t quite as frightening.
