I actually started this post exactly a year ago and I never finished it.
Morning pages is something that I do every morning.
I make me a cup of coffee, I sit down on my second hand desk and I write.
This idea comes from the book The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron.
I have personally never read the book, but I have watched many videos of different people talking about this concept.
Julia Cameron has an exercise where you are supposed to write 3 pages non-stop first thing in the morning.
What I do is I write 1 page of whatever I want. Sometimes I stop, but most mornings I keep going.
For me, this helps me release all of the thoughts and feelings I keep in my brain.
I’m an empath, so I have a lot of emotions.
I have been writing my morning pages for about a year solid.
It is so ingrained into my routine that I feel weird if I don’t write everyday.
I don’t write the same things everyday.
For example, somedays I write about the day before, goals for the day, my feelings about a particular something, my dream I had the night before, my job, etc.
Some days I just write “I’m tired and I’m not thinking of anything right now”. That action triggers something and I almost always find something to write about.
Something that also helps me is writing prompts.
I don’t use them often, but when I do, it always sparks a long writing session.
I recommend going on Pinterest and looking up “writing prompts”. There are a ton on there.
I don’t have the bess grammar, and at times I have a difficult time expressing how I am feeling.
Writing every morning helps both of those things.
I have been doing this for over a year and I hope this inspires you to open up a journal and begin your writing!
