Keep a Journal

A Lesson by Violet Rose

This lesson describes how to use a normal journal, which can be combined with the dream journal. This method is oftentimes the preferred method, as most of your best ideas that can become stories come randomly

Lesson Three: Keep a Journal

 

Simply enough, keep a journal. Buy one with the line width you like (or no lines at all) and looks appealing. Make sure you always have this journal on you. Whenever an interesting thought, poem or idea comes to you, write it down. Never let anyone read from this journal; if a thought is interesting enough to be shared, use a different medium. If someone reads from this journal, it will be contaminated!

Great Idea! I put all kinds of stuff in my journals. I let anyone read it, if they want. Sometimes, I cut and paste other peoples stuff in my journal to get ideas or because I like it. A diary is private but a journal is a place for many many ideas and stuff.

Great advise, i have a journal my self, and love the idea.
lots of great ideas can come and go just like that, but the trick it to catch them when they're still fresh in your mind. ^_^

I love this. I usually dont let anyone read my journal. If i truly want to share it, I will re-create it in a poem or song.

I never go anywhere without my notebooks. It's become second nature to me now: keys, wallet, ID, journal.

I use WriteRoom on my iPhone. It’s a simple text entry (no frills) software. Since I always have the iPhone with me anyway. The content is stored securely on their website and it synchronizes with Scrivener for those of you that use that writing software.

Plus I have a devil of a time reading my handwriting and typing it out makes me think the idea through more thoroughly.

My personal choice, just wanted to share.

You start writing for other people. The journal loses integrity. One of the fundamental LAWS of writing: Never ever write for someone.

Oh, I do that! I keep this little pocket notebook with me wherever I go. (: Oh, I hate it when people read my journal! It is very mean of them. :/
