When you’ve written three pages by hand in the morning, then your mind is pretty much emptied out. Morning Pages aren’t good for blogging, I can tell you that much. I’ve not committed myself to doing it, but it’s fun — I want to do it, so for four days in a row now, I’ve picked up that notebook, first thing. The notebook itself belongs to a series named Unplugged, fittingly enough 🙂.
Today, I was going to leave the blogging until later, but then I saw WordPress’ daily prompt, which happened to be “Empty” LOL.
I notice how difficult it is to go back to ballpoint pen once you’ve started using a fountain pen. Right now, I’m waiting for new cartridges for my pen, to be delivered from Amazon, they might arrive today or tomorrow. Staples is the only store here in town that sells this type of stuff, and their selection is very limited. They didn’t have cartridges for my slim pen.
If I’m going to continue on with these Morning Pages, I certainly have to be more adamant in jotting down blogging subjects during the day. Writing those pages as a stream of consciousness clears your mind completely, and I certainly don’t want to break my little blogging undertaking now, when I’ve come this far.
