Journaling — 2 Comments

  1. Lovely post, Cynthia. I have always been a sporadic journaler. However, I recently had some keyboard-related hand issues and went back to writing a lot in semi-legible longhand, then reading it into my computer. It’s been a wonderful reminder of the physicality of writing, and I find that pen to paper is freeing in ways the computer isn’t. I would never want to go back to the pre-word-processor ordeal of creating a clean manuscript, or journal!, but I do find myself writing many more idea snippets in my notebook since I started writing parts of the WIP the old-fashioned way.

  2. You raise an interesting dilemma about journals left behind. So often I’m working out a problem on the page and after I’ve figured it out, I move on, but the words are still there. Hmmm. Maybe I better get a plan for all of those old journals.
