I’ve been journal writing for 30+ years for a long-term collection of my thoughts, progression of self over time, and recording of travels/events. I rarely use prompts, but April’s [Personal Renewal] theme struck a chord with me, and I’ve enjoyed the focused, thematic journaling quite a lot.

I’ve been journaling and art journaling for over 20 years. I find NaJoWriMo helpful when I’m stumped about what to write, how to dig deeper, and how to face issues I may have avoided — it helps me grow. THANK YOU SO MUCH, NAJOWRIMO — you’ve helped me keep journaling and attached to what I really love.
