Everything is going swimmingly. The synopsis is taking shape; I am finally saying goodbye to my tiny part time job so that I can concentrate on writing; my planners and goals are shaping up nicely and I am totally on track.
Then I read Plan.Create.Succeed For pity’s sake, that is just not playing by the rules. When somebody is on a restricted diet you don’t ply them with recipes for double cream baked New York Cheesecake. So don’t show a recovering journal addict a new idea for a journal. And if you really must do it, then choose a cheap binder. But an A5 Osterley? What do you think I am made of? Cast iron?
I love it, I love the layout, I love the idea of having all my journaling in one place. My lovely and very beautiful red Chameleon is not used for my writing notes because it is freestanding, I want it all together. Having said that I cannot give up my freestanding Gratitude Journal and Commonplace book, so perhaps I don’t really need an A5 plum Osterley journal. I certainly can’t afford one, but I do lust after one, just like Helen’s.
