Writing Prompt--Journal Writing for the New Year

Most of the writing books, I've read endorse journaling--for pracitice, to mine for ideas, to work through writer's block, etc. I keep a writer's notebook of sorts. It is small enough to fit in my purse. I jot down ideas, resources, even short pieces as they come to me, but it isn't a daily exercise.

I plan to make daily journaling part of my writing improvement plan for 2006. There are 400 pages of unlined journal pages awaiting me. I chose unlined pages, because I want to try some drawing and webbing activities I've encountered. We're going to see if I can become prolific.

This is not a New Year's resolution. It's a goal. There's a difference--subtle--but still a difference.
Happy New Year!
