Word-A-Day Journal

I have always loved the idea of faithfully keeping a journal with something written or drawn for each day of the year. In practice it has never worked. I decided that I might have a chance if I only had to write one word a day and that it was important to keep it small and simple so I wouldn't be tempted to start more elaborately and then quit because I couldn't live up to the expectation. I designed a series of small books, one for each month, that go in a box made from a cereal box. My plan is to write the word at around the same time every day, probably before I start to get dinner ready. I like the idea of deciding on the word that will sum up the day. We shall see.

I love this idea! I noticed that I was encountering different words and wanted a way to record them. This is a great idea! I;ll start today!

Hi, I really like your idea. I received your last newsletter, where you remember this, and I'm planning to do it next year. I'm posting the project:
I hope I can make it through the year!
Thank you very much!

I love the simplicity of this! (and kudos to "Nat" for crediting you!)
