How are you feeling right now?
I have written morning pages for years and years. Many of those years I wrote at 750words.com. It’s the best site in the world for daily writing. My mindset while writing seems to always be introverted, positive, uncertain, and thinking. I should get a t-shirt.
The site also provides you with other fun and useful stats about your day’s output.
Morning Pages are Like Tarot Cards
If you don’t know what morning pages are … check out The Artist’s Way. Eventually, I’m going to have posts about my adventures with the Artist’s Way program. Over the years I’ve worked the 12-week program several times. Most recently I did it with a super group of women. Writing the posts will give me an extra reason and opportunity to reconnect with some of them. For now check out non-fiction I’m reading.

The four words that reflect my thinking every morning
Introvert: People make me tired. That was my first clue that introverts were my people.
Introvert is a word that has been getting a lot of attention over the past couple of years. Having pop culture talking about different kinds of introverts is useful. That shy stereotype was not doing anyone any good. Introverts, like myself, who are able to get out in the world and not look dazed and confused were finally able to claim the label without being pooh poohed. Why would we want to? Well, if you’re being labelled it’s nice to be labelled correctly.
Positive? Some mornings I have to wonder about this. I look at most things for a “but …” or “what if …” angle. In public I’m that person always saying the opposite of what others are saying. So it’s good to know that at least first thing in the morning I sound positive.
Uncertain? What am I uncertain about? Life in general? most likely :-0 Are you uncertain about anything in particular?
Thinking? What am I thinking about in the morning? Too, too much. Did I mention that I’m an overthinker? What’s your usual first thought in the morning? I usually think, “Why is this dog bothering me?”
