The first thing in the morning I used to do is write three pages of my thoughts. Incoherent, inconsistent, ambiguous thoughts, fears, desires, doubts. Everything is put on page through words. I picked this from Julia Cameron's book, "The Artist's Way."
Today, I tried drawing with pastels as a morning routine. I had had an inspiration pushing me to complete the work. As I got into the process, I spent 40 minutes working and re-working on the piece. I felt better after finishing the piece. I was thinking, why can't I start days with painting, drawing for a change.
Morning seems to be the best time for all the creative tasks. Earlier, I used to express my emotions through painting after a long tiring day. Today, painting as the first task seemed to set the tone of the day. Will try to be consistent with this.
