I’m never sure if I just have trouble following “rules”, have attention deficit disorder, or get easily bored. I’ve decided it’s all three . . . and I’m not joking.
I decided to embrace “my tendencies” for the journal writing class. Instead of just journal WRITING I’m combining it with doodling, collage, free writing (aka stream of consciousness) and what ever else might amuse me.
- I do not like starting on blank white pages so I smeared paint on the pages.
- I do not like doing anything in sequence. I am just writing, doodling, collaging at random throughout the journal
Cover of old journal I’m using – already covered with acrylic paint
A free-write with one-line doodles
In class – randomly pick a word cut out from newspaper. Free associate a list of words (The last word written might have significance). I free associated all over the page and lost track of the last word (which, as you know, is rare for me as I like to get in the last word).
Maybe it unconsciously prompted this next collage?
I might use this collage as a writing prompt to see what my unconscious is saying . . . or not
It’s suggested to journal 3 pages every day. Instead of 3 pages I did 3 sections: Free writing, things-to-do-list and one-line bird doodles
P.S. Since this is my PRIVATE journal don’t tell anyone else.
