Showing up…that first 100 words

100 words in calligraphy

Handwritten, not typed.

It’s a variation of Julia Cameron’s morning pages, but I found that setting that simple goal made it easy to squeeze them in before the dog insisted on his morning walk.


I always went well past the prescribed 100 and that last 50 words always seemed to set my mind in the right direction.

It felt good to start shaping my own productive habits. At times, I even forced myself to write that first 100 while my coffee and breakfast sat within easy reach. [Now that’s serious!]

It reminded me I had already created this template that I used successfully…but evidently not so successfully that I forgot about it. [Go figure.]
