Strolling Around the Internet

It's been a tough couple of weeks, so I'm taking an easy stroll around the Net. Taking my time, I've discovered some interesting tidbits, some funny stories, and a few things I wouldn't mind trying out.

Lace up your comfy walking shoes and join me!

1.  Shanan, the Procrastiwriter, guest posts over at The Positive Writer. She tells us what Rocky taught her about writing knock-out main characters - an entertaining and informative lesson.

2.  The title of Emily Akin's blog post, Journaling: Do You or Don't You?,  drew me into her cyber home. I've been jotting my thoughts in grungy notebooks, pastel journals, and faux suede volumes for years. Whether you're an aspiring author or like to record daily events, I think you'll find this interesting.

3.  Need a laugh? My friend, Sandie, a.k.a. Chatty Crone, always has something funny on her blog from cartoons to pictures readers send her way. She's not only humorous, but throws in quotes and thoughts along the way. Please keep her in prayer as she's undergoing surgery on June 11th for breast cancer.

Writers and Readers:  Are you captivated by pretty journals with all those blank pages? What kind of things do you write - daily events, struggles, Bible insights, funny things your kids say?

Yes I have! I actually have 3 journals right now. One for daily life, one for spiritual growth and things God is telling me over the past several months, and one for my writing career (plans, goals, hardships, God's provision). It can be hard to manage sometimes but it works for me.

I have a red journal, embossed Italian leather. I love it. It travels to the coffee shop with me on my writing days.

Hope this next week will be better, Susan.

Susan: This year, I am using a
journal with a bright pink It has a strap-like closure. Inside I write our my thought on certain verses from the Bible. Across the top of each page, I have been recording something about the weather.I guess I do this because of the weather we had this past winter.

Hello Dear Susan...I used to keep a daily diary....from 7th grade until my sixth decade of life.

That's a LOT of diaries----all up in a large plastic container in the attic.

I switched to a Gratitude List a few years back and filled many volumes with things I am immensely grateful for on a daily basis.

Truly, an attitude of gratitude has enhanced and enriched my life more than I can say.

Thank you, Susan, for commenting on Vickie, a fellow writer. She is such a love and I'm so glad you went to meet her. Susan

Great links, Susan. I don't journal, but I'm intrigued by the beautiful cyber journals/sketchbooks that some people do. They are works of art!
