I read through the introduction and most of the Tools chapter last night. Because Ms. Cameron emphasized the importance of starting on the Morning Pages as soon as possible, I decided to start them today.
First, I must admit I am not a morning person. As I told my journal, I don't wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. I'm more sluggish than sprightly, if you will. However, I really am determined to give this creativity program 100% effort, so I grabbed my journal on the way to the car. With my husband behind the driver's wheel, I was able to write my three pages.
Only I didn't write three pages. I wrote two.
I discovered that at some point in the past I had jotted down notes from a writer's conference - there were scribblings about books to read, synopsis tips and tricks, and even some general writing advice. This discovery hampered this morning's effort to write three pages. I didn't want to tear out those little gems, so I decided to simply stop, leave the notes where they were, and resume the Morning Pages tomorrow.
