My New Reading Journal

Experimenting with size

I desperately need to reread Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones. In it, she breaks her best writing advice down into (I believe) over 100 actionable steps. One of my favorites is to experiment with size, lined/unlined, and types of binding.

It’s a concept that I’ve been using with my journaling practice as I’ve developed it this year. As I finish each notebook, I try something a bit different. Right now, my everyday notebook is quite small and unlined. I love how it doesn’t subtract from the creative elements I use.

However, for a reading journal lines are a must. I also wanted to experiment with using a larger size while still being creative.



Wow! Did you notice that? It was your day flying by. This publication is your place to enjoy stories of 150 words or fewer about plants and people, wild animals and pets, gardens and food, how-to and how-not-to — written to inform and delight. Did I mention humor?
