Thursday Ten

Thursday Ten: things to do with a blank book

It’s been a while since I’ve done a top 10 list!

While cleaning out recently, I came across some blank notebooks that I once had intentions of using, but I somehow forgot about them. I love notebooks, but lately, I prefer to use my laptop because of arthritis. However, the blank notebooks gave me an idea or two or three or ten…

1. Writing journal

Writing every day can spark new ideas for stories and help you practice your writing at the same time. It can also be therapeutic, ignite your creativity, and help you achieve goals. 

2. Daily journal

Chronicling your daily life can be a task at first, but it can help you connect with your heart. In the long run, the entries can also be used in a non-fiction story. I used to journal when I was younger, but I haven’t done so in years.

3. Bucket List journal

I had a bucket list journal when I was younger! Putting pen to paper and writing the things that I’ve always dreamed of was a blast! 

4. Quotes book

I collect quotes, so I’ll definitely be turning one of the blank notebooks into an inspirational book.

7. Art journal 

I don’t really draw anymore, but whenever I feel the urge to draw, I can practice my drawing in the book.

8. Dream journal

Track the significance of your dreams!

9. Handwriting practice

I had a better and fancier handwriting before arthritis kicked in so this sounds like a good idea.

10. New words 

I love coming across new words especially long ones! I also love trying to use them in a sentence. 

What about you? Any suggestions that you’ll like to add to the list? Do you keep a journal of any kind?
