Great Wake Up Blog: Week #9
This week's challenge was to practice a daily ritual of creative writing in the morning.
This week's challenge was to practice a daily ritual of creative writing in the morning... and I'll be honest, it was more of a challenge than I expected. I write daily but before the Great Wake Up experiment, I never really blogged on a weekly personal basis.
I started writing this past week in the mornings to do anything, really - shopping lists, to-dos, ideas for anything random and creative - but not too long as to interfere with my morning routine. Whie I can't say that it was a huge boon to my morning, it did help make me more likely to remember ideas that flit through my mind, and helped on a couple of days with my workload.
I love my daily rituals and adding this new one into the mix for a week definitely shook things up. I'm not going to keep it - at least not in the morning when I'm sleepy-eyed and not at my bushy-tailed best - but I like the idea of allotting time to get some of the thoughts and ideas in my head out into the real world. Plus if it helps me stay occasionally creative then all the better.
