The Writerly Habit

This blog is about my struggles to get into the habit of writing regularly.

Journaling: Day 10 (Mandala)

Creating Mandalas

I am a couple of days late, but I did my exercises for week two. The first was to draw a mandala, however I wanted. Then I had to write a story about it. I have to admit, at first I was sceptical. It seemed silly and I didn't want to do it...but I did. I ended up drawing a frosted donut with sprinkles, then I began to write inside of it. I realized that I was very angry with myself, with the way I eat. That realization made the writing exercise very easy.

I also started using my timer for the exercises and journal writing. It really does help keep me on track. I found out that the stainless steel looking ones at Wal-mart are noiseless, problem is the alarm often scares me.
