I don’t remember when I stumbled upon this link, but it must have been earlier this year.
Here’s the link:
At first glance, looking at it, I was filled with excitement and dread. FIVE YEARS? Wow. That’s a LONG time!
But, I like the idea of it. It reminds me of my parents and their logs. My mom still writes in a notebook almost every day, recounting the day’s events. Then, they have boxes of red-bound books with logs of years past. I didn’t read them much as a kid, but as I got older, I enjoyed reading pieces of them, especially Dad’s. He crammed his neat all-capitalized print into every line of every page!
I can’t remember a time when I haven’t journaled, in some way. I always have pen and paper with me. My journaling has evolved and changed over the years – From just regular paper, to spiral notebooks, to loose-leaf in binders, to legal pads, and mini-notebooks. Now, most of mine is electronic, with the blog and all. But, I value my handwriting and I enjoy writing in cursive, so I’m considering this “five-year journal” endeavor for 2017!
I like the prompts idea. I may go that route.
At the same time, several of my journals have contained random ideas and thoughts, and some of those have turned into story ideas. So, who knows where this may lead!
I already have a potential notebook in mind!
What do you guys think?
Do you journal?
Do you consider your blog a journal?
Until the next headline, Laura Beth 🙂
