I know I should’ve done it sooner, but with another journal/blog prompt project coming up, I finally put up a 30 Days of Blogging Prompts page which is a subpage of Journal Prompts which you will find on the menu up in my navigation bar.
I successfully completed the printed version but just now realized I did not get to post all the entries I meant to post online. I’ll try to do that in the next couple of days.
Meanwhile, I’m trying to complete my first 20 of an online swap off of a hundred ideas/prompts from swap-bot. That’s the swap requirement but I’m hoping to do more.
Why all these blog/journal prompts? It helps to make “spontaneous” even more spontaneous by “steering” me in a different direction from what I would normally take. It challenges me to go outside of my comfort zone and try something new. And it comes in handy when I’m in a creative rut. I can just pick up a prompt and move from there.
There’s only so much that one can write and squeeze out of one’s thoughts based on a day-to-day existence. It helps me draw out something else beyond the feeling of the moment, whatever that may be. Others do it through drawings, I do it through words..
So I might yet finally finish one of my Journals on Journey soon, as I think I’ve come to a “size” that I’m comfortable with. One of the most difficult things for me to decide when creating a journal from scratch — as in literally putting the book together — is deciding how big or how small or how compact or thick it will be. I was at Barnes & Noble over the weekend and I was almost tempted to grab one of the smaller notebooks.. I stopped myself only when I get reminded I can actually make one of those. =)
Tonight I have to keep busy with something else, but at least I’m starting to get organized here.
