…and so I am going to start writing MORE often LESS perfectly. Not to imply in any way that I have ever achieved anything close to the P-word! It’s an elusive self illusion maintained to protect the ego…. so I must let it go and practice what I preach and share my ideas before they’re “ready.”
I am going to start writing more PUBLICLY. After half-reading The Artists Way by Julia Cameron, I always write my morning pages. When I don’t write my three pages of drivel first thing in the morning,
I feel rushed and scattered, especially if my day is unstructured by meetings and teaching – and I’m sure it’s not just a scattered feeling but that it’s apparent in my behavior as well. Because I have to manage my self, my projects, and my own time, I need to manage my mind. So I write.
But because I’m kind of a scaredy-cat, I don’t share. I keep wonderful private journals that nobody can read.
So now I’m going to start the habit of writing drivel that I share publicly in the hopes that what I learn and think day to day might somehow someday help someone someway.
I hope you enjoy and read and comment and share yourself. Here goes. Vanity, be gone.
