Week 1 Review – Morning Pages
I started Julia Cameron’s book “The Artist’s Way” last Sunday. Sunday also marked the first day of my morning pages journey. I have two flexible, extra-large Moleskine diaries to use for the next 12 weeks to write on a daily basis.
I have had a bit of hesitancy this week to get up and do them, but I managed to write six days out of seven. I skipped Friday because I have weekly obligation for my job that requires me to travel to another office, which is 40 miles away. As much as I should have taken the time to sit down and write, I didn’t. I inserted my first excuse, but, I’m not going to sit here and beat myself over the head for it.
One thought about this experience before I go. I’ve noticed that my morning pages seem unfinished, like I should keep going. I don’t know if this is what is supposed to happen, but I stop anyway.
Well, that’s it. I made it through week one. I didn’t do any of the suggested exercises from the book; however, I think I’m off to a good start. I will keep up with this as long as I can and report back to my blog as a personal commitment to myself.
