Jennifer Blanchard wrote at Procrastinating Writers of her experience using morning pages. She was far more successful with them than I was, though I have tweaked the concept quite a bit and have been doing what I call writing meditation for nearly a year. I haven't gotten the kind of results Jennifer did with morning pages, but they make me feel more on task. They make me feel better. Whatever better is.
Training Report: I did 1,678 words. I wasn't as on task as I'd like, either, and still managed what was for me a very good day's work.
