I, however, have discovered the secret! Just kidding: I've figured out what works for me. Find out what works for yourself, and tell me in the comments! I have three journals that I'm quite fond of, so I'll post them here for you to draw inspiration from.
Journal #1: Wreck This Journal
Wreck This Journal is seriously one of the best books I have ever bought. I'm not done with all the prompts yet, but I've really enjoyed doing some of them with my younger brothers. I've told the six year old that once he learns to read, I'll buy him his own copy.
Before demolition.... (With Mary @ Marchaelary and Christie @ The Celtic Cowgirl)
|I was NOT READY for this picture to be taken!|
|"Tape this journal shut and mail it to yourself". I haven't done this one yet, but I can't wait to see the look on the mailman's face when I do.|
|This time I was ready. Michael (the six year old) is on the left, Mark on the right.|
|I just had to dog-ear this one.|
In this one, I've written the titles of every book I have ever read--sort of. I don't think I listed Fun with Dick and Jane, which I learned to read with.
|I've only filled in a couple pages.|
Journal #3: My Happiness Journal
|Hey look, it's the corner of my bookish journal!|
