Keeping a journal is not just about writing, it can be sketching, doodling, making lists, or even making a college. It's not something you have to do everyday, but when you are serious about growing and expressing through your art then it's worth taking a few minutes everyday to work out your ideas.
Remember, journals/sketchbooks are for all your ideas, good and bad. You should never filter or judge yourself on what you put down. These books are for your own personal thoughts and growth. What may seem like a bad idea at the time, may be your best idea ever when you look at it in the future.
The words and sketches you do will awaken your creative wisdom, which will help you make better decisions about the direction you take in your creative process, as well as set better goals that will be easier for you to reach.
Next week I will share journal/sketchbook options, from buying handmade, to creating your own, or embellishing a store bought book.
Share your experience about keeping a journal/sketchbook.
