I talk about the art of Noodling in my article Introduction to Noodling for Writers. I find it both a chaotic way to start my writing day, but also a form of meditation in the end. You can see by the text how strings of thought begin to organically relate to each other.
I started the practice of “noodling” at the beginning of March ’22, and have made it a daily Monday – Friday habit to start my day.
This particular noodle is from March 3rd, 2022. One of my first. You’ll see as we get further on into March something organic and “magical” begins to happen.
