For those of you that aren’t familiar with the terms, morning pages is writing practice.
Morning Pages is a term coined by Julia Cameron; writing practice by Natalie Goldberg.
Julia Cameron holds that a writer, upon waking should write three pages of longhand. “In order to retrieve your creativity, you need to find it” she says.
Unfortunately I can’t find my copy of Writing Down the Bones so I won’t be able to quote Natalie Goldberg. But take my word, she is a master of teaching the art of writing. And if you haven’t read Writing Down the Bones then go get a copy. And don’t lose it.
