Corner View ~ last thing I learnt

I have decided to join a wonderful group of ladies, organised by Francesca, I discovered sometimes ago.
Usually I'm too disorganised to do such things timely, but I decided to "break the ice" tonight.

One of the things I've learnt lately is to keep a diary. It is a sort of "artsy" thing, or at least I'm rediscovering the joys of using watercolor, scissors and glue, and also put in it some of my photos. More than a diary I would call it a thought-book. I find that writing something everyday helps me a lot to be rooted in the moment, and to clarify my ideas. And it is useful to jot down all the ideas and todo lists and things I want to remember in one place.
I have been doing it for a month, I hope it has become an habit. Learning to express myself freely is a great thing!

Very true. I hope you keep up your journal.

I think I have a closet full of journals that I started and then stopped writing after two days. I hope you keep it up. They will be a wonderful memory to look back on.

I have tried so often to keep a diary and failed each time. I kept hearing at some point, without leading to the diary to end.

That's a great resolution. Don't put too much pressure on you and let the words and creative work flow! Enjoy...

I have never kept one, but I think it is a good thing to do :)

I'm glad you decided to join (you'd already added you to Corner to Corner). This year I started writing down one thought per day, and I really enjoyed the little ritual, but then somehow didn't keep it up. Will go back to it tonight! :)
