The Bullet Journal Method

The Bullet Journal Method

Want a cheaper more simple way to plan your life and keep track of things? I’ve seen what is called Bullet Journals, Now I may have covered these before but I really don’t recall if I have. I have set up my own for 2018 but I have some things to change for next year. Also I thought maybe I should have 2. a different one for each year, and maybe a more permanent one,  even if its just to have a record of layouts (templates) to use.

I’ve noticed when I use a journal for the year, that by the end of the year (somewhere between July and October I end up not really interacting with it as I did when I started.

I don’t’ have nice neat handwriting or drawing

How to improve creativity

Ever hear that one gets their best Ideas while sitting on the toilet? Not sure why this is, I guess for those that just sit there, its because they are bored.

I’ve had many times I’ve gotten an idea in the shower, as well as laying down to sleep. That’s because you are relaxed and unplugged.

Spend a few times during the day with your phone, tablet or computer off. Unplug, leave a pen and notebook or journal near your bed (under your pillow or in your nightstand etc.) Write down when you have an idea. As for in the shower… the only idea I have to write down ideas is this   Scuba Dive Underwater Writing Slate 6″ x 5″, . The odd thing though is it looks like a regular pencil that’s on there, so I’m not sure how that will work. I was thinking of a dry erase board just above the shower head so the marker doesn’t get washed off before you get to make a permanent note of it. 

I believe Doing these 9 Things will improve your creativity.  While I believe the person made it to be business oriented you can still follow it for anything you do. Collaboration, working with someone, can be fun. You can work off of each other back and forth.

I’ve found ideas and inspiration while reading books.or watching a movie or tv show. Something in it whether it was said or shown I ended up writing a poem about something in it. One of the books this happened with was in the Christopher Paolini’s Inheritance Cycle series (Eragon, Eldest, Brisingr, & Inheritance) I forget if I titled the poem or if I have even polished it to get ready to add to my book if I ever get one published.But one came from this,  Sometimes when I read someone’s poem I end up writing sort of a response to it.

Sometimes things just pop into your head or an idea keeps coming back to you and you get a sign. Like I was starting to write a story and didn’t write in any character names yet. I was thinking of naming my main character after my birthstone and would you believe I went somewhere and there on the floor I found my birthstone!

Inspiration can come in writing exercises, blog posts, Pinterest and so much more! You can check my Pinterest boards pinterest.com/ @kymoDragon
