For today’s “Journal It” I want you to focus on: Dictionary Words.
Yep, it is time to drag out the old Webster’s for some help in the journaling department. Journaling is all about the words, and what better place to look for inspiration than in a book full of words.
You might be surprised at how looking through a dictionary can inspire your journaling.
1. Use a dictionary word as your title and journal around it’s meaning. Maybe it is a definition of an event or a word that describes a loved one’s personality.
2. Use an actual dictionary entry on your page. You can see in my example below what that looks like.
I thought that one definition summed up the whole photograph of the beautiful women in my life. I didn’t feel like it needed any more journaling than that one definition. However, you could go on to describe how the people in that photo are beautiful and what they mean to you. Or describe the event surrounding the photo. See where just a simple dictionary definition can take you?
I hope this dictionary idea has been a help and if you are ever inspired by any of the journal it series, be sure to share a link to your layout in the comments section, so you can inspire others!
