How much fun is it to journal? Maybe something happened that excites you so much you need to make a written memory of it. That way, there is a note to go back to so you can relive it again and again.
I have been journaling since I was about twenty-four years old or so.
I wish I had all of my old journals. They held some fantastic emotions along with amazing descriptions of dreams and delusions. I do have my journals from my first year of sobriety – they are interesting years later.
Journaling is a great way to get it out or hold it in. It is a great way to dream big or start small.
Do you keep a journal for your thoughts? How about a journal for your characters in your work in progress? Maybe you keep a weight loss journal or a food journal.
Maybe you put little sketches in your journal or cut out positive quotes to stick in there for prompts. Maybe you buy stickers at the dollar store and after your entry, you place them just so to frame your thoughts.
Whatever the case, journaling can be a lot of fun.
