Morning Pages

I like to do morning pages because it helps me suss out my thoughts, especially when I’m working on my blog posts—or my current fantasy novel. 

Averaging about three pages is a good pace for me. When I’m writing using a handy-dandy-notebook (Blue’s Clues anyone?) I’m not distracted by the daily blips or notifications on my phone. 

Writing in the morning helps calm me. Putting my thoughts down on paper grounds me in a way, like when I stretch while doing yoga. Writing something down, like practicing an instrument, is therapeutic for me. It feels similar to practicing the piano, or meditating. 

I’m still trying to get on the meditation train, but I keep missing my call to board. 

In the same vein, I do hop on the morning pages train often, because it’s where I feel the pull the strongest. I do tend to miss the call “ALL ABOARD!” from time to time, but I love it when my feet hit the floorboards of the compartment where I’m staying. 

Do you participate in #morningpages? Why or why not?

Here’s to morning pages,

Hello there! I'm Meghan. Thanks for checking out my blog!

Although I'm almost 30, I haven't lost my sense of child-like wonder for the world around me. I've been making up stories my whole life: My imaginative play with toys as a child has grown up with me, maturing into my imaginative wordplay with fantasy and sci-fi novels, as well as free-verse poetry. I thrive on creating something with my hands and with my mind, using my pen or my keyboard.

When I'm not working, I'm reading, writing, or knitting, I'm sleeping. I also enjoy watching Netflix, occasionally playing open-world video games, or hanging out with my family, my two golden girl retrievers Bentley and Charlie, my friends, or my boyfriend Rory.

Happy blogging!
