Creative Ways to Fill Your Empty Journals || Journaling

Graphomania: an obsession with writing (Collins Dictionary). That undeniable urge to grab your journal and pen, and begin writing whatever comes to mind. Poetry, travel logs, feelings and thoughts, daily tasks, checklists, stories — the never-ending list of possible writing prompts. Does this feel at all relatable?

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a lover of literature and words. Reading and writing have constantly been a form of therapy for me, bringing me comfort by simply looking at a book or holding a journal. I can’t recall a single moment of my teenage years where I didn’t own and use a journal for SOME amazing possibility. But like many things, my time using journals and reading was put on hold as the bombardment of adulthood took over.

At the start of 2017, I made the decision to join the book blogging community to help bring my love of reading back to life. But what I wasn’t expecting was my love of journaling to also rise once again; the book blog community is FULL of NUMEROUS and CREATIVE ways to use journals! That NEED to pick up a pen and write things down started to come back, making my love of journaling ignite once more.

So for all you who love to journal, want to find ways to love journaling, or loved it once and can’t seem to get that urge to try again, here are a number of ways to find uses out of those unused journals (or excuses to go out and buy one).

Bullet Journal May 2020 || Plan with Me

Hello beautiful people!

Look what’s back … bullet journal posts! I know a few people REALLY get excited about these, so I’m sorry I haven’t posted one in FOREVER! To be honest, I JUST wasn’t feeling creative or inspired enough. Life kind of got in the way, to the point I wasn’t even blogging or reading as much.

Bullet Journal February 2020 || Plan with Me

Hello beautiful people!

So … another delayed post … I’m so sorry, people! Honestly, January was a crazy month — and without getting too much into my personal life, I kind of needed a mini break from reading and blogging and all those other things. With stress and French training and fitting in fitness and having a social life … I really just haven’t had the time. But I feel like I’m slowly getting back on track!

Bullet Journal January 2020 || Plan with Me

Hello beautiful people!

Yesterday, I finally posted my New Year 2020 Bullet Journal spread — as explained in the post, I didn’t get this journal until about a week ago … which is why it’s so delayed.

Bullet Journal August 2019 || Plan With Me

Hello beautiful people!

Last month, Alex @ Whimsy Pages suggested I do a Harry Potter themed spread in honour of the N.E.W.T.’s reading challenge we are both participating in. This is hosted by the BookTuber Book Roast … and it’s flippin’ amazing! To view her video on the challenge, click here. To view my N.E.W.T. challenge post, click here.

So … as much as you lot say I’m great at bullet journals (which I thank you), I’m actually not the best artist. Doodles is one thing, but actual artwork of castles and owls and more magical things? Not happening. So here’s a FAIRLY basic Harry Potter theme that I hope you enjoy … and is easy to copy if you wish to do so!

I hope you all enjoy it!

Bullet Journal June 2019 || Plan With Me

Hello beautiful people!

Okay … technically it’s still May so I’m not late. I don’t know … I just had little desire to do this. I actually loved doing it all until the weekly layouts … I think I’m going to go back to making them more minimal (less rulers and lines required) since I just don’t care to do SO MUCH! I also plan to buy some stickers and what not to help fill the pages out. Anyways … fruit for thought.

I hope you all enjoy it!
