Morning Pages are three pages of longhand, stream of consciousness writing, done first thing in the morning.
I have been exploring journaling for a while now. I have been experimenting with different strategies such as Using the Five Minutes Journal, writing on a normal journal. I now would be using the morning pages journal as a way to explore my inner creativity.
Morning pages are three pages of writing done every day, typically encouraged to be in longhand, usually done in the morning, that can be about anything and everything that comes into your head. It involves getting everything all out of your head, and is not supposed to be censored or edited. The idea is that if you can get in the habit of writing three pages a day, that it will help clear your mind and get the ideas flowing for the rest of the day.
The Artist’s Way Morning Pages Journal is a Companion Volume to the Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron. 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 not even “writing.” They are about anything and everything that crosses your mind– and they are for your eyes only. Morning Pages provoke, clarify, comfort, cajole, prioritize and synchronize the day at hand. Do not over-think Morning Pages: just put three pages of anything on the page…and then do three more pages tomorrow.
