Tonight I just wrote and wrote in my separate, private, for my eyes only journal. I love taking @missvickybee2
’s e-class throughput this week, and just bought her Fauxbonichi class. Her Dear Diary reminds us that our lives are not boring, that we all have something to write about and what took me over two years to finally figure out was easily separated and shared in her Dear Diary e-class, so I wish I had taken something like this years ago when I was trying to figure it all out. Initial items cover basics that are great for a newbie and then it evolves into something that for those struggling with journaling and how to separate what from what and just naturally being okay with it was such a good and validating feeling. It doesn’t always have to be in chronological order or in one notebook. It’s okay to complain away because no one has a perfect life. Newbies and experienced journalers can find something in it, helping to guide them to how they can put pen to paper in their own distinct style they can develop over time. It took me only until the past month to figure out how I wanted to organize everything and that’s because of three years of constant journaling and trying and just thinking it through. I did not have it all figured out overnight years ago when I started to regularly journal about my day, or sadness, grief, anxiety, or happiness. But now I am. And tonight, I am absolutely loving @papercutshk
’s B6 paper that I’m using in my beautiful Sojourner folio in yellow from @retrowtures
and am simply free writing away, not caring about the consequences of it being read by someone else. I love how slim it all is together, and this paper is so dreamy, and I love my @twsbi
Eco fountain pen with Document De Atramemtis in Black. Sometimes, I just need to write down all the good and bad and work it all out that way. It’s such a release of toxicity. No art tonight, just writing.
