I say that Morning Pages are a form of meditation. And just as we cannot repeat a meditation, we do not need to review our Morning Pages. I often joke, "First cremate the pages, then worry about the body." I have had people burn, shred, and bury their Morning Pages. Speaking for myself, I saved my Morning Pages for many years, saying "If I ever write a memoir, I'll need them." However, when I did write a memoir-- Floor Sample-- I found that I didn't consult the Morning Pages. My memories were vivid, probably because I had written Morning Pages. I believe the pages render us present in our life. Obsessing over our pages renders us self-centered-- so I believe in "write them and let them go."
