Five Minute Friday ~ Story

I jumping back over to Five Minute Fridays with Lisa Jo today.
On Fridays we write, one topic, no edits. Just the pure form of writing to write. Join all of with Lisa Jo at The Gypsy Mama.
Topic: Story

I want to be a journalor (is that even a word). But I just can't seem to make it a habit.
Maybe I do in the context of the blog. But this not the truly personal or at least not right away. But I seem to think more than I write.

I have tried to get my story out a few time times. Steve and I bought journals in the midst of the Fires. They have a few pages of notes in them.
Then I saw Art Journals and  I thought yes, that is for me. This lets my creative side out and I will write while I create. I have about 5 pages done since January, I guess I missed a few days.

Then I saw Smash Journals and I thought this is it. They are do what you please type journaling. Because, you know, the blank pages of the others were to restricting. I can say our travel smash journals are the most I have come to journaling so far. Though they are less smash and more scrapbooking. But for now it's a start.
I am trying to get Mouse to journal more. She loves the idea of it. Mostly I think she likes to buy journals, diaries and sketch books. But in my desire for her to have a place of her own to write I keep buying them.

I guess like her I keep hoping that it will be the vessel that prompts me to tell my story as beautifully as the ladies here do. Someday maybe I will realize that it is my story not the vessel that is import.

Then again maybe I need to go get a new journal.
