Morning pages – in the journal or separate book?

I started doing morning pages a while back, and I been doing them in a these cheap kraft notebooks. I didn’t know how this would turn out, and doing the math I could see it would mean filling a few books a year.

But now I’m thinking of moving them into my journal. Why? I’m finding what I’ve been writing is part journaling, and I find myself re-writing stuff in my journal because I feel like it needs to be in the ‘official’ record.

I’ve also thought about doing morning pages on a legal pad and just tossing the sheets. On days when they’re 80% complaining and other emotional spew, that’s probably a good idea, but when you start you don’t really know what’s going to come out.

What do you use for morning pages?
