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, how to face issues I may have avoided — helps me to grow. THANK YOU SO MUCH NAJOWRIMO — you've helped keep me journaling and attached to what I really love.
NaJoWriMo is Not Just for Newbies
I’ve been journal writing 30+ years, for long-term collection of my thoughts at any time, progression of self over time, recording of travels/events. I normally don't use prompts, but April's [Personal Renewal] theme struck a chord with me and I've been enjoying the focused, narrow topic to journal to quite a lot.
Commit yourself to writing something every day for thirty-day days. It will help you grow as a writer and give you material to work from in the future. Use your creativity to make something wonderful. Get busy, write!
I’ve been journaling for a year, fairly consistently, and completed NaJoWriMo in July. I am learning so much about myself from journaling. Thanks for your support and encouragement and your ability to put together the prompts which lead to deeper understanding. Keep up the excellent work. Really appreciated by this fellow journaler.
A boost when journalling gets stale
I’ve been journal writing for 55 years. So many reasons to keep my journal. It's a friend in times of need, a record of my life and a a place to sort out issues and worries. I found the stimulus of new prompts brought a freshness to my writing.
Writing, Journaling, Thinking
I have been journaling forever. All of my writing can be considered as journaling. NaJoWriMo provides a layer of structure and digital cataloging that I need and didn't have prior. I'm able to keep my projects on track and, at the same time in the same format, delve deeper into my personal thoughts and writings.
@NaJoWriMo I am on day 10 and going strong towards self renewal! Lots of good thoughts in my journal this month so far. #amjournalwriting
