    In my journal, I have random poems, fan fictions, drawing, writing prompts, and thoughts. No candy wrappers in this one. 🙂 So, I was wondering, what do you keep in your journal?

    In my actual journal I just have writing, but I have a folder with brochures/tickets and other such things. I also have many unfinished notebooks with all sorts of things: game scores, short stories, pictures, ect. that I now don’t know what to do with.

    @allison-grace lol. Which journal? (I fill mutiple) Journaling is is one way I process life so… I have a lot of ’em.
    One notebook I keep is for all the little life lessons I learn. It’s pretty awesome to go back and read where you’ve been in life and what you’ve learned.
    Another is written in a letter form more about what I’m doing in life and future goals.
    And there’s my Bible journal. If I write something down it helps me remember what I’ve read.
    And I also keep a quote book, which tycnically isn’t a journal, but thought I’d throw that in there. Quote books are the best!

    Do you journal often?

    @rolena-hatfield I totally get you! Writing things down help me process things so. much. better. You have a quote book!! I don’t have one but I really should. You reminded me-I also have a journal that I write in things I learn, answers to prayer, and what I read in the Bible. The journal I mentioned before would be things I experience.

    In my journal I mostly keep notes for my writing, random ideas and thoughts I have, and notes from church. And an occasional attempt at a drawing. I usually erase those because they’re so bad though. 😂

    @allison-grace I write about my day, I sometimes take notes from church in them (I have another notebook for that, though), I write about ways God has blessed me, sometimes I write down prayers or songs, sometimes I even have the inspiration to make up an absolutely terrible poem. I’ve only actually ever filled up one journal. There are so many pretty ones out there which I collect, that I keep switching from one to another. XD I have a memory box for my other stuff (souvenirs, tickets, etc.) and a box with special letters I’ve received. I used to keep sermon notes in the back pocket of my old journal, but I filled it up. There: A peek into my personal…well, stuff.

    Oh, and I have a Bible journal too that I take notes in from my Scripture reading in the morning.

    Sounds like I sort of have a mash-up of all your guys journals. 🙂 I have a separate one for church notes, but my current journal contains: poems, half-finished poems, half-finished fan fiction, half-finished drawings, and drawings of the eclipse. Plus random thoughts. I also have a collection of journals.

    @allison-grace I really should journal more, but my hand cramps up so easily that writing has always been a pain. I usually only journal when I’m excited about something or want to get something off my mind.

    @shannon Hand cramps are the worst! I’m so thankful for computers! Otherwise I would never be a writer. My hand would probably fall off. :p You could start journaling with a keyboard. (I know, I know… not the same as actual paper.) But you can always print them out and bind them together so it’s actual paper.

    @jadamae Processing via thoughts on paper. Glad I’m not the only one 🙂 Quote books are so fun! Once you do start one, you’ll have fun and love it!
