Happy National Notebook Day!
That’s right folks, today marks the second annual National Notebook Day. This event takes place on the third Thursday of May each year.
I love blank books – there’s such a world of possibility that lives within those pages. I believe that books are a great vehicle for telling your story, whether with words, images, or a combination of both.
So you like journals but don’t know what to do once you get your hands on one? Well, just head on over to my Pinterest board Whaddaya do with a blank book? There are tons of ideas there to help you get started.
And another thing – if you have first page anxiety (most people do), I recommend that you start writing on the second page of your book. That way, you won’t have to deal with the pressure of making that first page look “right”. You can simply begin. The first page can easily be filled in later with a title or dates.
Feel free to satisfy your book pic cravings today by heading on over to Instagram – you can check out the event account or images tagged with #nationalnotebookday. Or you could just head on over to Etsy to do a bit of shopping…
Go forth and write and/or doodle!
