    Daily Paper Prompt #27: Slow Journaling

    The prompt is to slow journal. Start by drawing wavy lines on your paper. Make the waves irregular, not the same each time. Some go up down up, some down up down etc. Don't make it too easy to journal. After the wavy lines, write your words by stretching the letters to meet the top and bottom of the waves. Go slowly to ensure your words are legible. Keep the lines of the letters stretched. At the end of each "line" you have the option of stopping at a syllable and putting a hyphen, no hypen, ending on a full word... or just keep going without syllabic breaks, without hyphens! Break the word wherever it breaks.

    The reason the journaling is so darned slow is that it takes awhile to form each letter, each word. It is quite meditative, calming. So the prompt is to do one page of slow journaling before the end of August. Consider slow journaling with a purpose. Try to describe your situation or surroundings in infinite detail. Use descriptive words. Or try to solve a dilemma.

    Love this! What a great idea--slow down, think about what you will write, make it meaningful. Yes, a great tip! Can't wait to try it.

    Just finished this one. I wrote out the words that I planned for the page a few days ago, then slow journaled on the page today. I think I rush too much to slow journal regularly, but it was fun to give it a try.
