Happy October!

Near the start of September I made a poll about writing every day in October (here) and I'm intending to follow through on this. I hope that other people are encouraged to give this a try, too.

I haven't been writing in my paper journals much at all for some time now. It's clear from the page I'm sharing here that I don't have my personal writing voice back yet but I am hopeful that if I write every day, it'll come back to me. That is my main goal for October.

paper journal #35, pages 32 & 33: October 1st, 2014.

There are no rules in participating in the 'write every day in October' challenge. You can share your posts or keep them to yourself. Talk about the process, share insights or pages in a video. Take pictures of your pages or type out an excerpt of something you wrote that you feel like sharing.

Or carry on doing whatever it is you do that helps make this community awesome!

p.s. I loved 'The Journal Tag' post with videos answering questions that you can think about for yourself. Inspiring!

I'm starting tonight! I'm not sure how much I will share, but I will be following, commenting, and looking for inspiration. I haven't journalled on paper for some time.

I haven't written in my paper journal much for a long time as well. So far, Three days in, my 3 for 3. I'm hoping to get more used to it again as I go along.

This place is a great place for inspiration - especially if you check out the tags along the side of the page!

I had forgotten about this.
But, by coincidence, I am starting a new sketchbook.
I laid out some new colors and images and parameters last night.
I write everyday anyway, firm habit, but i will be trying some stylistic changes.

Happy October everyone!

Yay for a new sketchbook!

Yes, I remember that you write every day. I think that's fantastic.

Happy October!

That's awesome that you've been writing in your journal every day recently - I'm hoping to get back to being like that, too.

NaNo! I have no idea what I'd write about if I were to participate in that, but when I think of NaNo, I think of katytastic's inspiring & motivating videos from a few years ago!
