three hours

The truth is if you scribble for three hours straight and just enjoy the scribble and just keep doing it for three hours, somewhere in there will be a beautiful line. a beautiful thought or a beautiful dream. The act of writing down thoughts { Julia Cameron recommends three pages a day to get things going} but I have found that three hours is the magic number to totally leave yourself behind and go ahead. After 20 minutes it becomes boring but after you have gone three hours you are in a different place. I discovered this once when I was locked in a car for three hours. I had a notebook and pen so I started writing down anything that was amusing. After so much time passed the things I was drawing were so much better and my thoughts were so clear. Three hours are going to pass anyway so why not use them to get to a fantastic place.
