Sorry this post is a bit late, it has been so hot and predicted to get hotter in the next week (up to 111 degrees F on Thursday which is ridiculous, especially considering the freezing cold temperatures in America over the last week or so) and I have to force myself to do anything in the heat. It is a huge demotivater. Nevertheless, here I am. 🙂 The notebook is almost full now, 12 months after I started it, which is really excited. It is the first writer’s notebook I have maintained and hopefully it will be a brilliant record of my creative and emotion journey over the last year. I think the success of this notebook was down to my decision not to pigeonhole it to only one purpose. Instead it stands as organiser, essay/research notes, a place for my creative thoughts and an informal and often philosophical journal.
I wrote today’s offering when I was taking down all the posters in my college room and packing to move home again for the summer.
There is a glaring empty space on the wall
A hint of moving out, moving on
And just a reminder that you can see my Summer Review Series here. 🙂

Looking back over old notebooks is one of the best things ever!
I dream of having a collection of identical ones spanning the years, all arranged in a neat little row in my house or office. 🙂
I have quite a few, though most are only half-full of writing because they started life as school or uni books. I’ve only got about three pages left in my current one which is pretty exciting,
What a great idea! Must be so interesting to read when its full. I should keep a notebook too.
Yes, you definitely should! I used to hear people always saying ‘keep a notebook’ but it always seemed like a chore before. With the one I use now, it is easy to keep it up to date. I think the secret it picking a notebook that looks good and feels nice to write in and to let it serve more than one purpose. 🙂
Yes yes, exactly. And a good pen too =D
I think that too. It has always seemed like a chore to me. I have loads of diaries(I collect them #GUILTY) but can never be bothered writing my appointments in them. Is there some tips you can give me, to use my diary more and stay organised??
I wish I did have some tips for you but I am equally hopeless at keeping things up to date. My top tip though would be to not confine a notebook/journal to a single purpose.
