A few weeks ago, I got the book, It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again by Julia Cameron. Over the years, I have picked up and put down Cameron’s famous book, The Artist’s Way. It never felt like the right time. Then I found this book, written for people heading into a new season of life, especially retirement. The Kindle version was on sale so I added it to my library. I read the beginning and browsed the rest of the chapters. It seemed like a good idea to start with the basics, Morning Pages. Fortunately, I have an abundance of empty notebooks so I put one next to the couch where I start my mornings. I have been doing these pages, pretty much every day, for almost 3 weeks. I’m still not convinced but I am going to keep going. I also have questions. Do you do Morning Pages? Are you supposed to go back and re-read what you have written? Highlight things? Or just keep moving forward? Would love to hear your experience.
This week I am going to jump into the chapters where the tasks are oriented toward capturing your stories in memoir form. First week, ages 0-5 years. That is going to be interesting because I have so few memories of those years.
I have heard that people are having trouble commenting on WordPress blogs because they are required to log in. I checked my settings and see that I have turned off the feature that requires commenters to log in. If you are asked to log in before commenting would you let me know? I find that ever so annoying. It wouldn’t be so bad if there were just a few blog platforms but there multitudes of platforms and I am just not going to sign up for an account with all of them. I post here because I like the writing process. Your comments are icing on the cake but I don’t want you to wade through a big mess to make a comment.
Happy Monday. I feel like this is the week that I am going to make some headway on my rhythms and routines. And thanks to Katie for inspiring the notebook Monday theme.
