“Isn’t it mysterious to begin a new journal like this? I can run my fingers through the fresh clean pages but I cannot guess what the writing on them will be.” – Maud Hart Lovelace, Betsy in Spite of Herself
For about 2 years, journaling was a daily staple behind tracking my progress in blogging and other writing projects. At the start of 2019, I suddenly stopped making these organised notes. Each piece suddenly became more separate into my drafts and various digital documents. This happened shortly after I published the article placed below.
Considering if this is a good or bad thing, I have an idea to bring it back. Instead of keeping a personal diary, moving it to a weekly thing on UNGROOVYGORDS is a type of long-running series I want to do. More then just a website update I do every so often after 100 posts, this form of content could cover more than establishing where I am at
Off the top of my head, it could display my processes in developing concepts. Lists of research in bullet points. Goals and barriers to overcome. Shout outs or share something of anything I like. Talk to myself like no one is listening. Improvisation in upcoming sentences and paragraphs. Surely much more when I am used to it again.
Overall it would be a tool to keep me at the top of my game. Deliver a more personal approach to who I am. And document thoughts that could inspire anyone who decides to read it. Currently, in Australia, it is too humid to do any more writing today so ill consume more of my audiobook and then go to bed.
“In the journal I do not just express myself more openly than I could to any person; I create myself.” – Susan Sontag
