Bullet Journal and Writing

Hello everyone! I realized I completely spaced and haven't made a new blog post recently. So, I'll update on how my bullet journal and writing has been going. Sadly I still haven't found a job. It's frustrating and I think once I get a job I'll be able to get a lot of things done that are stressing me out.

I'm shocked at the fact I've been keeping up with the bullet journal.Now, following it is a different story, but I'm getting a bit better. I did end up caving and getting a few items from Hobby Lobby*. I bought two sets of skinny of washi tape: Colorful and Black and White. I'm using a lined notebook that I already had and will probably use this until the end of the year. I also bought these "No Bleed" Sharpie markers and they work wonderfully plus the 40% off coupon helped. :) I also bought these other Sharpie markers but sadly they bled through. In the future I would definitely get either this 12 piece set of the "No Bleed" Sharpie markers or this 20 piece set of Triplus Fineliner Pens which are really popular with bullet journalist.

I've been writing a lot lately and it's pretty great! It's not my main series but it's been fun working on this story. I've been handwriting this story and I can definitely see the benefit of handwriting first. If (by some miracle) I finish the story by July I'll work on typing it for my camp project during Nanowrimo. Otherwise I think it's time to go back to my original series. Also, for this side series, I may post it to WattPad or a similar website and get feedback once it's done. Otherwise I'll try to get a few beta readers to look the story over and give some feedback.

A side idea I've had is to make a writing inspiration journal. It would be the similar set up of a bullet journal but focused more on writing. If you'd like for me to do a blog post on it, let me know! If I get some interest I'll definitely work on that.

That's all I have for this post. I'm hoping to post sooner for upcoming blog posts. Also, if you have some ideas on things you would like to learn more on or other things related to writing, just let me know! :)

  1. The writing journal would be interesting! It would be nice to have something to look back to for inspiration.
