Week Notebook Project // Before

A few months ago I did a project called "Notebook Experiment" where I started carrying a notebook around with me everywhere I went to try and write more. It was a great success - during my travels I would often stop and take sometime to write, or in normal life if I ever had a thought or idea or observed something I thought was interesting I would quickly jot it down. The main brilliance was in it's convenience - it was always in my pocket. After returning home, however, my project fell apart a little bit. There are two reasons: 1) I don't really leave my house very often in my normal life, and so I wasn't going out, notebook in hand, ready to write. I haven't been taking much inspiration from my house, and so my notebook sat alone, and 2) it's summer, it's hot, and I can't wear the jacket with the pocket that fits the book and pen. (A logistical but legitimate issue.)

I've decided to do another project! I have a small Moleskin notebook that is currently perfectly empty, and I am going to give myself one week to fill it. I'm hoping that this will make me more aware of writing, will boost my focus on writing, and will remind me that even at home (where I'll be spending most of this week) I can be productive!

When the week is up I'll post an update on how it went, with a few select pictures of written pages! I hope you're excited, because I definitely am!
