Journal Topic Ideas

1-7-2014 7-55-02 AMI’ve decided to use some composition notebooks to make different journals. I am so scattered and need to get more organized. I plan to use these topics as tabs in my books.

Some of you may be asking, “But that is a lot of journals to carry around!” Well, I solved this problem by carrying just a very small composition book and notecards in my purse. I can jot notes on these throughout the day and then paste them into my journals when I get home. You can also use Post-It notes.

I’ll post pictures as I create each journal.

Happy journaling!

About Karen Y. Hamilton

Walt Whitman says about his autobiography, Specimen Days “…At any rate I obey my happy hour’s command, which seems curiously imperative. May-be, if don’t do anything else, I shall send out the most wayward, spontaneous, fragmentary book ever printed.” This is what I feel at this juncture of my life, the need to gather together memories of my ancestors as well as my own memories into some semblance of order. Because all of those fragments, all of the fragments that make up any life, become stories. I am the mother of three sons, who affectionately (I hope!) call me 'gypsy mom' because I tend to wander around a bit soaking in the universe's wonders. I am currently working towards an MFA in Creative Writing at Florida Atlantic University. I have published essays with Heritage Press, Florida Living, and the St. Pauls Review. I am currently working on a book of poems about the Florida Everglades pioneers and a memoir about grief and the bonds of friendship. I live in my hometown, Jupiter, Florida and work as a freelance writer and curriculum specialist.
