About a month or two ago, I told myself that I will start keeping a journal and write in it. So I started with your simple composite notebook and did a few entries. To me, it really didn’t feel like a journal to me, it didn’t feel personal. So after looking around at Barnes & Noble, Michaels, and online at some of their journals, I didn’t find one that I like. Probably because they all had lines and the paper was thin. I wanted something not only I can write using pen, pencil, marker and not wet through the paper, but also doodle in it to. This past weekend I decide to buy a small sketchbook and make that my journal. Below is my first entry that I wrote in my journal.
Fear! Fear of writing and keeping a journal/notebook with my thoughts. Its the fears of a relative finding this and skimming through the words and pages.
Today, I make the attempt to write on paper, either my thoughts or use my imagination to write a story. To make an attempt and with time,hope my writing will improve. Improve in my abilities to express my ideas, thoughts, and the use of language.
