How many is enough?
This morning, as I was reading and journaling, I counted the places I capture ideas, thoughts, information, quotes, things to pursue, do, remember, places to go, etc ... I tallied at least SIX...not including my iPad and iPhone nor the random pieces of paper I grab to write a thought, idea, memory ~ a habit I’m trying to break!
Each journal/place serves a specific, well, almost, function. My brain started to ruminate: which can/should I eliminate or consolidate? Yes, I know I’ve been down this path, sharing my thoughts and then-conclusions here on the blog. Oh yes, I forgot about the blog!
As I read, I ran across an artist who has 77 - yes, you read that right - journals, planners and sketchbooks that she dips in and out of on a frequent basis. Oh, I thought, 10 (+/- ) capture tools is nothing....
On this, Day 3 of my Staycation, I am toying with the idea of testing out the Traveler’s Notebook system...perhaps it will provide an answer to some of the questions I have and also fulfill my natural impulse to write via hand (though I am typing this post on my iPad in DayOne) .
I think I’m too easily inspired (or is it a case of greener grass ?)
Oh, I hear the cleaning lady* rattling a bucket; She’s here to clean the frig and I may have to help ~ since this is her first time...
How many journals do you use? What are your thoughts on the subject? Joining Kat and friends for this week's edition of Unraveled Wednesday.
