Hi everyone! How are you? I hope you’re well! No I’m not lying in the title, this is actually my 200th post! 😵 It feels like only yesterday I was celebrating my 100th (I’m getting old! 😂). In order to mark this shocking occasion I wrote a short ramble about the 3 notebooks my blog has stemmed from and I’ve been looking forward to sharing it with you (as random as it may be! 🙈😂) So here it goes!
These are my 3 blogging notebooks! Two are from the past and the last one is what I write in at the moment (although I still keep a messy list at the very back of the first notebook of every post to my blog so as to keep track). As much as I love to write, I can honestly say that it is rare for me to completely finish notebooks but on this incredible journey that doesn’t seem to be a problem (touch wood or better still any possible surface 🙌😂).
Despite this being my 200th post, not all of the words I have shared are crammed into these 3 notebooks. Some words can’t be written by pen or pencil and will only surface through the fluidity of finger tips on a screen. Sometimes I can’t write fast enough or maybe my hand will hurt and so having a different way of communicating thoughts before I get frustrated with myself is in my eyes a luxury 😂
These 3 notebooks (and many others in the past and present: mostly containing fanfictions 🙄😂) have often been a subject of speculation as I don’t let them out of my sight. Not because I fear people will read them (that was the worry with my fanfiction binders of notes 😂) but because I don’t want to not have them by my side when inspiration hits. Sometimes it feels like the words would never leave me if it weren’t for these notebooks, it’s difficult to explain. A good notebook that has been given a purpose to fulfill will bring the words out of you before they have even crossed your mind. Writing that first page is as magical a moment as writing the last.
Draped throughout are random words, posts that never made it because they were from times of madness when I couldn’t sleep and was delirious 😂 and words I needed to let out so as to finally be me fully and speak with the most amazing people ever!
I hope that didn’t catch you off guard 😂💕
I will treasure these notebooks (and the many that are hopefully to come) forever! If I were to ever put my possessions into perspective and be somewhat minimal these would be the only notebooks I would need on my shelf (but we all know that’s not possible with notebooks! 😂).
I have no idea what will be scribbled on the next page and this is both frightening and exhilarating. Some words probably won’t make it on here whilst others will because they see no reason why they should not and are driven by the confidence you have given me! It is ever growing just like I hope this journey will continue to be and I can’t wait to share every minute of it with you!
Thank you for reading! 😉 Take care and have a lovely day! ❤
