The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.
~ Anaïs Nin
I am not a morning person. So the idea of Morning Pages: getting up in the morning and filling up three pages with the first things that come to mind in long-hand is daunting. Not that I mind writing long-hand ~ I have over fifteen pen pals that I write long-hand letters to and most of my blog posts begin in long-hand.
But filling up three pages?! In the morning?!
I have tried it once. It was a freeing experience. But then I forgot about it, didn’t feel well, needed to meet a work deadline, blah, blah, blah. So I plan to write them tomorrow morning. Every writing blog I follow that mentions Morning Pages swears by them: for emptying the mind, getting into the flow of writing [especially writing every day] and for putting on paper all those ideas for characters, poetry, articles, etc. that have been floating around in your head.
Wish me luck!
