#JusJoJan – Jan. 25 2022 – Journal

JusJoJan by Linda!

Today is January 25th, so this is the 25th prompt for Just Jot it January 2022, and it’s brought to us by Scarlet. Thank you, Scarlet! Please be sure to visit her blog to read her post and say hello. And follow her while you’re there, if you’re not already.

Your prompt for JusJoJan January 25th, 2022, is “journal.” Use the word “journal” any way you’d like. Enjoy!

Do you journal?

I am a great collector of journals. I have plenty. I am also partial to getting the stationery that might make your journal ever so pretty, and the tools to make said journal look professional.

Seriously, I have a trolley, filled with washi tapes, and pigments, and even stamps and stickers.

Yes, I do love a journal.

However, confession time. I have no time to actually use any of the stuff to journal!

This time last year, I started in January and followed some journaling prompts, daily. It was a tad easier, since we were remote learning at school, so I had to leave school at a set time, and there were no kids in, so it was easier to get things done in school time, plus we didn’t have this added one hour commute, a day, either.

The daily prompts didn’t last.

And neither did my journaling.

I still look fondly upon my journals, on the shelf behind me.

One day, she says, one day…

    Maybe an audio journal would be faster and easier?? Using the vocal recorder on your phone? 😊💕🌹

      It’s time, Chuck, plus I guess the cathartic process of creating the beautiful spreadsheet in a paper journal!
      I hear my voice enough, lol 😆

        Ha! I get what you mean. There is something about scratching words down on paper in red ink!! But Capturing lines and ideas at stoplights and wait times is a good use for recording on the phone. I how you feel about listening to your own voice. I feel that way too. A necessary evil to preserve an idea, title or line.

    All writers seem to love journals whether we use them or not. Journaling can be so cathartic, though. If only there were more hours in the day…
