I completely agree! We talked about this in Writer’s Cramp class last week when we discussed what we ACTUALLY write on a daily basis. I have scores of beautiful notebooks, Moleskin and others, filled with grocery lists, trip confirmation numbers, overheard quotations, budgets, etc. etc. I used to journal, but I haven’t in years, yet a glance through these notebooks almost accomplishes the same record keeping as the journals: On this date, I went to Chicago. On this date, I was planning a party. I find them as fascinating as the syrupy scribbles that filled my high school and middle school aged years.
I love lists, and while frankly I rarely get around to acutally crossing an item off the list, I find joy in just making them. It’s like a brain dump.
Jo, I really enjoyed this post. Thank you!
