Creative Journaling has no boundaries. Write, draw, stamp, color!! You do not have to stay within the lines. Write a story; create a song, a poem. Over the years you will build a wealth of notes that could lead anywhere you want to go, the next great novel, or screen play.
You never know!!
“All of life’s riddles are answered in the movies.” – Steve Martin
There are quite a few faces to poetry, from metered rhyming verses to free style to a more formal structure. All are great for journaling; whether they are serious, fun/silly, and lyrical or thought-provoking they are all a great form of expressing yourself in your journals.
