February Journaling Challenge

I have some exciting news. My good friend, Karin and I have decided to do a February Journaling Challenge. We hope you will join us, and participate.
Journaling is not about rules, so we have kept that to minimum with only one rule:
All you have to do is follow a daily prompt, and do ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING YOU WANT WITH IT. You can do an art journal page, drawing, writing, doodling, poetry, fiction, whatever you want.
We have specifically selected prompts that could be used in a variety of ways, because even Karin and I are approaching this Journaling Challenge from very different sides. Karin's main form is mixed media journal, and mine is writing. So as you can imagine, our entries and our interpretation of the prompts are likely to be very different.
You can join us, and do whatever appeals to you.
We will post prompts daily on both our blogs.
As I said - journaling is not about rules. So I will share some of my pages, depending on what I do with those prompts. Some of the entries may be too personal to share. Karin is planning to share all her pages. Our entries will be posted on our respective blogs.
If you want to share yours with us, please contact us, and we will be happy to post them on our blogs. Even if you don't want to show your entries, just join us on this amazing Journaling journey, where you devote the shortest month of the year - only 28 days - to journaling every day. You can do as much or as little you want, but I believe that at the end of the month, you will feel happier or at least more insightful for this exploration.

  6. Hi Dolly,

    One of our journaling members just found your site and shared it with us on our journaling group in Yahoo. I would love to join you on your journal challenge. May I post your challenge on my blog? I will wait for your response first... Thanks looking forward to February.
