Morning Pages

Build Status

I've long been fascinated by the morning pages habit of writing three pages (or about 750 words) of whatever comes into your head each day - it's like taking a mental showers and helps to clear your head, ready for the day. There are great sites out there like, but I live on the command line and like to keep my words on my own computer.

When installed, type morning-pages to open your $EDITOR with the file for today. Type away and quit your editor, and you'll get stats on how many words you've typed today.

Use -d <folder> to change the default words folder (currently ~/words).


In future, I hope to post words stats up to a central server so we can track leaderboards and badges. Don't worry, we'll never post your actual words.


We work on pull requests. If you have an idea for something you'd like to contribute, here's how to do it:

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
