Journal Everyday Update – Week 1

8 days ago, I gave myself a little two week journaling challenge and wanted to  report back with the results!

I don’t know if this journal challenge has been a success or not….

I have successfully picked up my art journal every single day and drawn something! Yay!

I have also successfully managed to misplace my brand new writing journal. I mean…it’s somewhere around here. I wasn’t even using it. What! Why??

Oh well, I did give myself room for using whatever journal I wanted for this challenge, so art journal it is!

 

I’m very happy that I’ve managed to stay consistent with this challenge. I have always loved drawing, but I never cultivated my skills past eighth grade art class when I failed the class for not drawing the pictures the way they were meant to be drawn. (Seriously.)

With this challenge I find myself looking for my drawing ‘style’ as well as playing with lines and shadows. Some drawings I critique more than others, but I appreciate each of them because they each represent me attempting to learn something new.

Anyone else out there do any journaling this past week? I need tips on how to get started on a writing journal!

Journaling Challenge!

Time to journal!

I have always loved journaling but it’s one of THOSE things. I can never consistently remember to do it. So let’s make it a challenge! I’m going to try journaling everyday for two weeks straight. I have a few journals, which will give me some leeway. One is my blogging journal where I write down post ideas and blogging tips. I also have a journal for drawing, which I use rarely. I’m not great at drawing so I use it when the mood fits. I just bought a new journal for WRITING in. Personal thoughts, dreams, you name it….This is by far the most difficult type of journaling for me. I can make to-do list and to-wish lists all day long, but writing out my days, thoughts or aspirations does not come easily! Wish me luck!
