Want to start a journal but not sure what to do with it? You can check more out in my “How to use a journal’ pages (so far 2 pages on journals are posted) of all the different themes there are, as well as ideas and more.
You can have one general journal to keep all your thoughts, stories, Life moments, Poems, Movie,tv, book product reviews even recipes. Try finding a pocket sized one for the year or those moleskine type ones. (Something the thicker the better so you can hopefully just have one or 2 a year. I’ve tried this out Moleskine 2016 Daily Planner, 12M, Extra Small, Black, Hard Cover (2.5 x 4)
Or you can do them by theme, or if you still have no idea or need some help what to write, there are journals that come with ideas for topics for that day called prompts. There are others of the sort that are for lists.
What is a journal? It can be anything you want! it can be a personal diary that you tell everything to, it can be work on a project, note for or the story itself. Poems or you can just make a doodle sketch one out of a journal. Mine is across between a journal & a smash book! If you are having a problem at work or school with someone.. write it all down. Keep it with you or in your locker. You can even have a friend(witnesses) write their side of the story in it as well. Keep track of your pain & how you manage it, also track your diet & fitness there are some Ideas on my Beauty blog . There are Sentence a day journals, or a short paragraph to sum up whatever you want. Use different colors for different topics, entertainment etc.
Find a style that suits you… I personally Recommend the Moleskin Brand but there are plenty I love on Amazon (You can find them in the pages on Journaling in the menu)
Here’s the Travel Theme journal mentioned in Last Weeks post
Here’s a beach theme (a good idea for just writing up what beaches you traveled to what you did or not like about them,even if you are going to write a short story, or a small novel with a beach theme they will inspire you.
