A Summer of Journaling

Myfanwy has organised a two month antidote to a summer of sport, a committment to creative journaling, on a new blog, ‘Write On’. She isn’t strict, it doesn’t have to be every single day and the prompts she is posting are ideas that you can choose to use or not. It’s about enjoying being creative.
I’ve decided to join in and rather than using an existing journal, I will use loose pages and make them into a hand stitched book at the end of August. That way it will be whatever size it is, rather than making myself feel guilty for only doing a few pages of a new book.
This morning at around 5am, the first prompt was to take some time to be quiet, and write about what you hear.
This is my first page, July 1st 2014.

Many of you will know Myfanway, she also blogs at Chittle Chattle and has created an inspiring Facebook Group, Be Creative.

  1. looks like a great creative outlet – and I love what you shared here – and your first page is so tasty – you have such nice colors in the words too!!!

  2. What a lovely start to the day! I’m taking part in this challenge as well and like you I had the idea of binding all the pages into a book at the end. Look forward to seeing more of your work ☺

  3. Brilliant, timely post, Gilly! I love the way you’ve set it out and the neat descriptions of your early morning inspirations. Most mornings I hand~write three A4 pages of free flow stream of consciousness ~ but I’ve been thinking that I’d like to add some focus and not keep re~hashing the same old things. I’m not sure how to join in, though, ~ is there a link that I can follow? 🙂

I would love to hear from you . . .
