My journalling has rather fallen by the wayside in the latter part of 2011. I want to get it kick-started over the next few days, and get a lot more filled in during 2012.

How has 2011 gone for you, journal-wise? Are you starting a new journal for 2012? Do you want to do anything different with your journalling next year? And, um, yes, anything else you'd like to say?

I've been pretty good, but not great, at my journal-keeping. (Too much time spent online.) One thing I've found useful for catching up, is a website/program called iDoneThis, which sends an email every evening (you can choose the time) to ask you to spend thirty seconds writing down what you did that day; I use it as memory triggers to catch up with my paper soul when I've been skipping it.

I have a new journal book, one of the last three of the hand-made ones I got two years ago. That, and a Rollabind book for morning pages, should see me through three months or so.

My main resolve is to write more honestly. Somehow, this year, I've been writing as if someone else might read my journal, so carefully editing out some of the more vehement reactions and feelings. I want to go back to my core, and write for myself again.

I've been decent about journaling. I've been trying to write every day, but there were some months where I hardly wrote at all.

I'm hoping to write daily in 2012, and I'm continuing with the same journal. I am literally halfway through it. The next page starts the back half of the book. (Yeah, I sort-of planned it that way when I saw how close I was.) I am hoping to write longer entries, though. Right now, most are just a couple of paragraphs, but I'm not sure how to make them longer. Something to work on.

I have a variety of paper journaling ideas percolating for 2012.

One thing that I've decided to do is take an official break from my daily pages [originally Morning Pages, but I usually would do them at night before bed]. I've been having serious issues with them ever since I had my kidney stone this last summer, and clearly they're not doing what I wanted them to do, so I'm taking a break for a while.

I've got my vocabulary journal to keep up, and I am considering restarting my BoPA [Book of Positive Aspects] and/or a "Ta Da List" journal for my daily accomplishments.

Beyond that, things are still vaguely nebulous as to final ideas, but I have another 22 hours and 18 minutes until I really have to make that decision final.

Journalling is one of my goals in Health Month (for December and again for next month). So far it's worked really well as a motivating tool. I tried to build in a big buffer for things like, "I'm having a fibromyalgia flare and cannot move my arms" so that I wouldn't get discouraged.

If anyone is interested in trying Health Month (I recommend it), there's a dreamwidth team called "White Lotus" and [personal profile] inkstone will sponsor people who want to have more than three goals. Although I suggest starting out small for your first month - success builds on success and all that.
