I’ve been talking to a few people online today and this past weekend about journaling. How it’s different from writing for publication. It’s just journaling, not drafting something or formulating ideas or getting something into a shape for others to read. You know, it’s different. It’s not writing. It’s journaling. See, let me see.

For me, it’s the Cojournal.
