Making time

Last Wednesday our sketchbook journaling group had a discussion about making time to journal. My only suggestion was to carry your journal and simple supplies along with you at all times. There will almost always be moments throughout your day if you are aware of them. You only need a few minutes here and there. You could try challenging yourself to make one entry a day for a couple of weeks. Make it a habit and making time will come more and more naturally. Personally, I have plenty of time to submit journal entries, but I still don't do it as often as I would like. For me, it's not so much a matter of making time as it is just becoming more impromptu and less concerned about controlling the outcome. Making time starts with being ready for unexpected moments and then diving in.
