Morning Pages

Since December 29, I've gone back to writing morning pages, under the direction of writing guru Julie Cameron. Three pages every day. (And why does my notebook have such big pages, anyway?)
It's a habit I'd gotten away from, with the excuse that my daughters don't go to bed early any more, and neither do I, making it harder to get up early and write. But somehow, the morning pages habit is carrying me along -- I'm stunned by how freeing this is and how much I have to say. Why did I ever stop?
