Excavating Memories

“It’s surprising how much of memory is built around things unnoticed at the time”
Barbara Kingsolver

Since I’m working on journaling this semester I’ve been getting up the last two days and writing journal entries, similar to Julia Cameron’s morning pages. I’m already surprised what is coming up in just the last two days, with this semester being 15 weeks I imagine that I will be excavating a lot of memories that I thought were long gone.

Today, try morning pages. Commit to writing morning pages this week. After the week you might find that this becomes a great warm up for your other writing.Try not to censor your thoughts as random as they seem. Later you might find a good jumping off point from these seemingly random thoughts. Now get back to work!

  1. Love the ‘morning pages’ concept. I just started making myself ginger tea each morning (not as good as Kismet) and in the 10 minutes it takes to brew, I free-write. Like you, I’m amazed at what comes out!
