I BELIEVE IN MAGIC

Posted by Kay Butzin on Wed, Mar 14, 2018 @ 11:23 AM

It will be nineteen years on April 9 since I wrote my first three morning pages.  Over the days and months since, I have journaled my way to a better understanding of myself, my family, and every relationship in which I’ve ever been.  Having experienced the benefits of journaling in general and of Mari’s programs in particular, and being in a writing slump at the time, I accepted her promotional offer of the self-paced program, 14 Days of Journal Magic for Writers.

Life interrupted and I took twenty days rather than fourteen to complete it; but when I had to miss a day, I looked extra-forward to my next journaling session.  First thing in the morning I would print a copy of the day’s exercises and then sit with my mug of coffee, lap desk, spiral notebook and gel pen, and respond to the prompts.  As a result I wrote:

My Journaling Journey

Posted by Anthony Billoni on Tue, Aug 08, 2017 @ 08:00 AM

Maybe turning 50 was a flashing yellow light.  Maybe I was afraid the light was about to turn red – on reaching significant goals I had set for myself.

What came to be my daily journaling habit was years in the making.  Recently I came across an online journal from close to 10 years ago. Just one entry.

Just Checking: Are You Making Time for Your Reflective Writing?

Posted by Mari L. McCarthy on Tue, Aug 20, 2013 @ 09:00 AM

Do you ever complain about how there’s not enough time in the day? In today’s world, most of us lead such busy lives that it can seem impossible to set aside even a few minutes to pause, unplug and reflect.

Join Our 12 Days of Morning Pages Journaling Challenge Write Now!

Posted by Mari L. McCarthy on Tue, Jun 04, 2013 @ 09:49 AM

I’m not exaggerating when I say that Morning Pages changed my life, and I’m confident that they will change yours, too. Morning Pages started me on my journaling journey 13 years ago, and they continue to help me grow, change and learn every day. I’m happy to report today that I’m starting my 16th straight month of ambidextrous #MorningPages and oh, oh, oh, the places I go! I can say quite confidently that Mari, thy name is creativity.

The idea is profound but simple, inspired by Julia Cameron’s book The Artist’s Way: every morning when you wake up, you write three pages of longhand, stream-of –consciousness journaling before you do anything else.

You make your Morning Pages an essential part of your day, like brushing your teeth or having a cup of coffee, and you create a powerful practice that clears out mental clutter, unblocks your creativity, heightens clarity and helps you discover your best self. And it helps you solve problems, make decisions and take action and….

Creating a Morning Pages practice is a gift that will last a lifetime, and it takes only a journal, a pen and less than 30 minutes each day. The hardest part is getting started.

Take the first step, and join Create Write Now’s new journaling challenge. It's titled, 12 Days of Morning Pages, and it's a course that's delivered to your email inbox once a day for twelve days.
 
During the Morning Pages journaling challenge, you will:

•    Write every day on a different theme and explore topics that you will come across often in your Morning Pages
•    Clean out the bad stuff – self-criticism, fears, worries, stresses – to make room for the good stuff – confidence, creativity, hope and action
•    Have access to Create Write Now’s online journaling community, where you can ask questions, discuss common challenges and receive support from others
•    Nurture your inner artist and get in tune with your interests and talents
•    Discover and start working toward your personal goals
•    Learn to identify harmful obstacles and challenges that hold you back
•    Focus on how to become your happiest, healthiest and most creative self
