To Journal or not to Journal

ahh - a big debate, huh? Or maybe only a debate in my mind . I used to do a monthly journal on my website, but I gradually stopper. Why? because eventually I run out of things to say - seriously. I know it's hard to believe, because I can be such a motor mouth at times (not to mention standing on my soapbox and waxing intelligent things for everybody to gag at LOL). But seriously, I run out of things to say.

Also, I scratch for time. I work full time as a night nurse, and try to meet my deadlines when I'm not sleeping. And I do two blogs - this one and another that is more a hit and miss as I get something to say. And a monthly newsletter. And...I could go on and on, but it sounds like whining LOL.

Journaling is wonderful, if the author has interesting things to Say and readers are interested in reading about it. I know there are a couple of journals I read, but again, I only read them once every couple of months or when i think of them and have the free time - and that's it. Free time is very rare .

Journaling is a great way to share how you're going in your writing and life, but it's obvious to me that some authors love to journal and others aren't so crash hot on it - aka me. Mainly because of the TIME factor again.

You know, if I was paid to stay home and write, I would journal! I'd have that little extra time - wait, you know, that still wouldn't happen - because I run out of things to say! Not that you'd know that by looking at this ramble...!

Angela, time is definitely of the essence! And, geez, ya can't always come up with the profound journal or blog of the day.
At least, I can't!
