I'm such a writer...are you?

I'm such a writer.
Always have been.
And hopefully always will be.

I know my writing on this blog may sorta...stink. And it probably does. But writing is just something fun I like to do. Sometimes I don't have enough time to sit here and edit, rewrite like writers do. I use the simple spell check and then when something doesn't make sense, I say, "Please Jesus, translate it in their minds!!!" because I need to get homework done (sorry).

One thing that I like to do though, is journal. Life. More life. And more life. All in a notebook.

Amazing. :) *ding! and weird grin*

I've been writing in journals for about two years now. I love how you can look back on things and say like, "OOOOOOOOHHHHHH yeah, I remember that..." See things and remember when times were hard or really awesome or in between. I love to add quotes on certain pages, draw all over everywhere, put stickers on the cover.

It's me in a book.

[by the way, I know that quote "You can't start the next chapter in your life...." has nothing to do with what I'm talking about right now. I just liked it. :) heh heh]
I love how when you write in a journal, you can write anything. ANYTHING. Nobody can judge what you say when it's in your journal unless it's on the table and one of your siblings (or mom) will come around, flip it open, and know everything about you. Creepy. Anyhoo... (I'm not saying that from experience! haha Just warning you... It is possible! Almost happened!)

I love to see how far I've come. My break-throughs. How I survived. :) Journaling is amazing. [read this next sentence in a gospel voice] "Thank you JESUS for JOURNALING!" [thank you, my dear reader]
Here's some cool journaling tips I found around the internet. Up top ^ and below. :)
Are you a writer? What do you love about it? Any sweet tips?
