Well considering that everything is cluttered on my computer desk that would be interesting. It sounds like memory recall exercise. However why use a paper journal when there is a computer here and a keyboard I can type on? Then I do not have laptop, yet.

::smiles:: I encouraged the use of a paper journal (or even a notebook) because I've learned through various venues that it's a good way to embrace the actual "act" of creative writing - kind of going back to basics by introducing pen to paper. I love the act of writing and it helps me to see it in my handwriting, as well as typed on the screen.
