Only two days.

Well, I'm new here, and this will be my first journal exchange/swap ever. I've always wanted to do this, but most times you must already have a completed journal to do this, and this is the first community I've seen where you get advanced notice and time to do it. I will say that I am an all text journaler, I have made attempts at more creative journaling, and it didn't go bad, but I don't have my colored pencils anymore, I gave them to my little sister. I'm sort of strapped for cash right now, like everyone. (I need a wisdom tooth pulled :() I promise I'll make it as creative and entertaining as possible. And because of the cash, I just bought a simple checkered composition notebook, though I may decorate it.

If I'm able to know who my partner is, I was thinking of doing a letter-journal. Basically a collection of letters to a new friend, that I barley know. But I'm not sure yet. We'll I look forward to starting in two days :) I'll make my introduction entry in the journal sometime before Monday.

We'll, take care, and I look forward to this journal swap with you guys :)

I'm a text-only journaler as well. But when I did this the first time (and with my personal journals) I would find things to stick in it like ticket stubs or programs or receipts. Just to mix it up.

Something one of my partners liked about my journal was that on occassion, I'd ignore the lines and write diagonally on the page or even sideways. It was still just text, but made it interesting to look at. :)

I hope you really enjoy this project!

the sideways and diagonally sounds great, I'll probably end up doing it to mix it up thanks :) A second journal, I'm not really sure if I want to keep a second journal. I'm seriously considering just using my lj as a second journal, and paste them into my journal, just so it can look like I wrote, and create a time line for my journal. Not to sure yet...
