I am in no way an artist but I believe living is an art and we must utilize all the tools and techniques that we can to express the beauty of the divine that dwells in each one of us.
Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning. There is no wrong way to do Morning Pages-- they are not high art. They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind-- and they are for your eyes only.
-Julia Cameron, The Artist's Way
So far I've succeeded in filling three blank pages with random, disembodied, dream sequence like thoughts and musings that would otherwise horrify my writing professor. Writing in a hypnagogic state isn't so bad at all. You don't censor, edit or agonize over grammatical lapses when you are in a state of pure awareness. You just write, you just flow. Isn't creating just flowing? I'm beginning to see the wisdom in Julia's teachings and work.
In the meantime if you're anything like me, go buy yourself a pretty journal and start writing before you have that morning coffee.
