Mindful thoughts you'll want to remember

Last Update: April 26, 2018

WRITE THAT IDEA DOWN!

The following idea for this post came to me through a reply I was writing in SiteComments yesterday. It was for a Bullet Journal Review.

The Bullet Journal is a system log to help you remember past events, organize your present tasks and create a future plan. It is a kind of manager to handle all or any of your tasks. A journal! It was quite an interesting article.

LET'S GATHER OUR THOUGHTS, SHALL WE?

As an author, I have always kept journals. I write in them to clear my head of numerous ideas for stories, blogs, prayers and thoughts. I have different journals for different activities. This way, I always have ideas to write about!

My Jesus Journal (as I call it), for personally connecting with my Creator. (There is a picture of Jesus on the cover.)

My Sermon Journal that I take to church and write notes from the sermons. On the cover, it says, "STAY TRUE TO YOU AND YOU WILL END UP INCREDIBLY HAPPY."

My Author Journal, for keeping notes related to my books and characters.

My Inspirational Journal to capture expansive thoughts that motivate me throughout the day.

My Every Day Journal for miscellaneous writings, recipes, notes, reminders and schedules.

My Dream Book Journal for writing down all the goals I want to accomplish; & my timeline for when they'll occur.

My Web Journal for all the insight I mindfully gather for my websites.

(It was so much FUN shopping for them---selecting from all the varieties of journals available, and all the beautiful covers I chose!)

Great places to shop for journals are: Barnes & Noble (or any bookstore), Five Below, Walmart, Amazon and Ebay, to name just a few.

WOW! WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?

Did you ever wake up out of a sound sleep with a thought or idea running through your brain? Sometimes I do, and when that happens, I grab my phone and type it to my NOTES. Then I'll add it to one of my journals the next day. I do this often, whatever time of day or night it is!

A Web Journal may be a great resource to have when creating your business here at Wealthy Affiliate. There are endless tasks to do and things to learn here. When you get a great idea that you must add on your site, this journal will help keep it fresh in your mind!

I just wanted to add a little organization to your life that may help you build the best and most creative site imaginable!

THANKS FOR READING MY THOUGHTS!

Erin :)!

I suppose I could, but they may be too personal.

Oh to be so organised, I have one for all things web and a hundred thousand bits of paper around the place looking for a home. Plus a daily diary.
Better lift my game.

Not as religiously as you do. I scribble thoughts all day when they occur (especially when I'm writing and don't want to forget something). Then I transfer it to Penzu.

That's very good, too, Carol! I have reminder notes all over my house, too! Ha ha

I'm guessing a lot of us writers do. I was amused by my cat yesterday. He was on the spare bed that had a piece of paper on it, working very hard to shred it...the paper, not the bed! Think I could patent my new invention...the Catomatic, worlds first living shredder? Oh-oh. I see a slight crack in the idea...George is neutered, so how would I manufacture more Catomatics?

A goofy idea---but I LIKE IT! That may be difficult, though!

Think I'll make my first million that way? Then I can sponsor George into WA and he can have his own website to promote it!

Where do you keep your journals?

Is it on the phone or laptop or computer?

They are actual separate books that I write in.
