I have a million notepads, sketchbooks, journals, folders full of scraps and ideas. I love them. I love to look through the old ideas and make new ones.
I bought another one today. Of course I did! It’s got some fake bonded leather cover and it looks all slick. It has one of those little ribbons attached so you can keep your place easily.
I love it.
Trouble is…I am always so intimidated by a new journal/notebook/sketchbook. It’s a lot of pressure to fill it with things of substance.
I find that it is easier for me to begin if I skip like 5 pages and then start something. That first blank page is daunting!
I feel like if the first page sucks the rest of the words and doodles in the whole thing will be just as sucky. I don’t want to ruin it…
