Sometimes you’re not sure where to start.

Maybe you don’t need to lock yourself in.

I’ve been using the template above for the last month.

Here is my Eclectic Journal prototype, along with a third page detailing the origins of three of the components.

I hope it works for some of you.

And feel free to pass it along.

Tim – I like your format, especially the gratitude list. What a great way to get started without bemoaning what’s lacking (but not slacking!) A blessed Thanksgiving to you & yours!! 🍁🤗🍁🙃🍁🤗🍁

    Many, many thanks, Virginia! Great to hear from you. I actually bungled this entry and meant to post an updated version of the PDF and the images. Oy. But I’m thankful for readers [and writers] like you. [Not to forget photographers.] You have a memorable Thanksgiving as well. T.
