Morning Pages – Day 1

The bedrock tool of a creative recovery is a daily practice called Morning Pages.

Finally got around to trying this, thanks to Tim Ferriss for the tip.

The idea is to write 3 pages, by hand, every morning — for a total of 750 words. My hand was hurting after one page. For now, 3 pages is an aspirational target.

Here’s the only coherent thought from the whole page (edited for grammar):

Typing is a mechanical exercise devoid of art and spirit. It lends itself to getting the job done, not exploration or expression.
