Yes to this moment. To the new paper smell. To the freedom of pen – always pen – scratching on paper.
Journals are my thing. I’m kind of obsessed with them – I probably spend about 5 hours a week writing in them, really. My absolute favorite moments are those where the words flow so freely that I could write for pages and pages without stopping, and sometimes I do. Then I close it up and wait until the next bout of inspiration hits.
Sometimes, I even go through my old journals. I read my struggles and joys, and even moments where I made a huge fool of myself, there are plenty of those. Writing things like that always provides a little comic relief and a lot of lightheartedness. I laugh at myself a little too often.
Yes to inspiration. Yes to laughing. Yes to these moments.
