Written Words

This year I'm making a concentrated effort on my writing, and getting into the habit of consistent journaling. When I began my first year in college, I was religious with my journaling, and am so glad  as I now have an entire book to look back upon, full of thoughts, memories and even a few mementos tucked into the gold-trimmed pages. Since then, my writing has been rather sporadic, only happening when I felt "inspired", but let's be honest, if I want to get better, than the way to do it is to practice...same with just about anything else. So, whether it's here sharing with you, scribbling down brilliant ideas as they come, or just sitting down and making myself put pen to paper and dreaming a little, this is my public declaration that I'm going to be dedicated to it :) Do you journal?

Love your outfit! And your room. Very adorable. I love keeping journals. I generally do more of a quote book than a diary, but it is one of my most prized possessions.

I am a huge journal and have a whole box full of old journals. I usually do it in the morning with my coffee and write about my previous day, that way I don't have a lot of pressure in the evening before I go to bed. There are definitely phases of journaling, but good for you, girl, for getting back into it. Keep us updated. Happy Tuesday!

i LOVE journaling -- my biggest problem is that I always write it with the reality that someone might read it, so there's nothing REALLY personal in it. if i could get over that and get back to real, intimate writing... i'd probably be an emotionally healthier person haha. && your room!!! <3 <3 <3

I also used to journal religiously but now I find it difficult. However, I found that when I have a particularly difficuly situation I avoid journalling and then I have to force myself to be honest with myself in my journal.. it's not all rainbows and flowers like when I was younger ..
