Journal Junkie


My name is Carrie and I am a journaloholic. Yes, these are ALL my journals, and frankly, there are more somewhere lost in my apartment. I do not remember when it all began.  Maybe it was when I kept note pads all over the place and would wake up in the middle of the night scrambling to find something to write down an idea with.  I am not really sure it just crept up on me and the next thing I knew I was loaded with them.  Now that I am aware of my problem, I try to resist the temptation to purchase again one more for my collection.  It is hard but I think I can do it, with the help of my fellow bloggers, and the fact that my check book stands strong with a firm no!



I also have a bit of a pen, pencil, and writing paraphernalia fetish, but that is an entirely different story....or should I say "horse of another color". :-)
Do you have writing tools that you must have?

  1. One of my favourite places to visit is a nice stationery store. Books, notebooks, journals, pens, sticky-notes, cards... mmmmm.... delicious fun. Not to mention all those writing utensils.

  5. Love your post. And yes, I like to write with a razorpoint pen on a yellow legal pad. It's funny how these things matter to us.

  6. Just today I was in a store and looking at journals, but then I realized that (perhaps unfortunately) now most of my writing is done on the computer and I really don' need those wonderful and beautiful journals anymore. Sad, but true. I used to love them!
