To keep myself honest, I’ve decided I must occasionally check in on this whole three pages a day idea I’ve “borrowed” from Julia Cameron. So here goes.

Today was my third day in a row. I’m letting three pages of my book come through me and spill into my lime green spiral notebook. So far, I have done this in under 30 minutes each time.

It is magical for several reasons. One, it just flows when you don’t try to edit yourself. You have to allow yourself to have a real rough draft. Two, it has a way of making you feel really accomplished. I have nine pages written and they’re pretty darned good. In less than an hour and a half. At this rate I’ll have well over 100 pages written by September.

Go, Nan, go.
