I can’t believe it’s only been 11 days since I started my morning pages challenge. However, out of the other side of my mouth, I can’t believe I’ve stuck with it for 11 days! As predicted, writing in the morning is TOUGH for me. It seems that my first few words are always: sleepy. tired. grumpy. It has also served as a great place to record my dreams. They have been active and weird lately. But I’ve found a bit of a rhythm and it’s always hard to cut myself off in order to get ready for the day. Saturday morning’s pages were great because I could write as long as I wanted. I hate racing the morning clock. I have learned that it takes me about 15 to write the three pages. You would think that I could get up earlier, but it’s just not possible. But a clock does make me get right to it, spit out what I want to say. I started on the first day with an unexpected genre (or theme rather?) and I have continued building on it each day — even if it’s only one of the three pages. We’ll see if it turns into something more. For now, I’m just sticking to the plan — three pages, first thing in the morning.
P.S. So this weekend I discovered this new app that turns your photos into watercolor portraits… Umm, maybe I spent too much time playing with it!
