24 Books to Christmas – Day 3

baublesToday I’m proposing something a little different.  I’ve recently got back into journaling last month with Comfy Cozy Up‘s #ajournalmood writing challenge over on Instagram. We journaled every day  in November to a different prompt word. We then posted a short video of ourselves journaling or of a picture of our journal page for the day along with some great music to match.

This was such a wonderful idea.  I couldn’t believe how well my writing flowed.  But, most of all I was surprised at how much I looked forward to each new prompt word to write on each day.  I highly recommend it for beginners who are trying to get into the mood of journaling.

So this all gave me the idea to suggest The 52 Lists Project: A Year of Weekly Journaling Inspiration.  This book was recommended to me by Leslie from Folklore and Literacy blog.  She suggested I pick it up to get into journaling because the premise is simply to make lists weekly on various subjects year round. For example, you could make lists on your favorite characters from books, movies, etc., list your favorite quotes, the difficult moments in your past that have shaped you for the better, the things you would change in your life right now if you could, your quirks, etc.

The book is separated into 4 sections. Each section is represented by a season, with thethe 52 first season being Winter. There are 13 lists to be made in each section.  I’ve decided to add this to my daily journaling in 2020 to see what extra will come out of my journaling. I won’t be writing in my beautiful hardcover copy because I’d like to keep it in case I’d like to redo this list making in a few years.

This book would make an excellent gift. It’s something different for people who like to put pen to paper or people who would like to try but they are feeling intimidated.  I foresee this as something interesting and easy to follow since it’s a list per week and not everyday. Not to mention, img_1665each page is lined in case you’d like to write directly in the book.

  1. the 52 Lists Project- I agree this one makes a great gift! Something else I’ve found is that even though it is designed around the 52 weeks in a year, it is a journal I have returned to write in over a couple of years: adding to lists I began when I first received the book, or even beginning some lists for the first time. Some pages, maybe I couldn’t come up with a whole list in one sitting, so I simply add whenever I am so inclined!
    (P.S. thanks for mentioning me and my blog even though “folklore & literacy” is not currently online….hoping to remedy that, soon)
