I’ve been keeping a journal for about 3 years now. Why do I keep a journal? It feel relieving to just let whatever you have on your mind and just put it on paper and leave it there. Not only do I just write, but also doodle, draw and watercolor when I have nothing to write. What do I use for my journal? I don’t use a regular notebook that most of us used to keep notes in school. For my journal in 2018, I used a general sketchbook that I found I my local hobby lobby store that was within my tight budget. It a hard cover and at least able to handle light watercolor washes.
