Getting Back to Writing

I'm a writer. I've always been a writer. I remember joining the Writing Club in 4th grade and loving it. I may not be able to write captivating stories or thought-provoking poems, but I still like to write. Heck, obviously I like to write, I'm a friggin' blogger for God's sake. One of my biggest faults as a writer is not being able to keep up a journal. It's not secret that every type of writer suggests keeping a journal. It doesn't really matter what goes in the journal, but the fact that you have a place to write down your thoughts is the important part. Don't get me wrong, I've started plenty of journals. There are stacks of half-filled journals in my desk at home, ranting about boys I had a crush on in the 6th grade and petty stuff like that. Starting journals isn't my problem. The real problem is continuing to journal. I think I'm just really bad at making things a habit. I always make excuses for things, then eventually stop doing them all together. So what's the point of this nonsense? Well, I'm giving journaling another shot. Two different classes of mine this semester suggest keeping a journal for various reasons, so that's enough of a motivator for me. What I will write is unknown, but that's unimportant.

What I need from y'all is motivation. Ask me how the journaling is going, or what I've been journaling on recently. Hit me up on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and pester me about journaling. I just need people to keep me going because this is a habit I really don't want to die out.

I'm also super curious as to how others journal. What do you write about? How often do you journal? Is it electronic or handwritten? Doodling or strictly words? I'd love to hear others stories. Whether you comment below or email me I'd love love love to hear about your journaling method. Please and thank you! Have a great week everyone!
