I've been keeping journals for about thirty years (on and off) and now am doing daily morning pages. My journal-life changes like the weather, so I've done a lot of different types of journaling. Today I took a day for reading about journaling (between bouts of EMT class study)... Here's part of what I came up with:

"The unexamined life is not worth living for man." - Plato, attributed to Socrates

Journaling ideas: journal in candlelight, write "unsent letters" to those who get your pen going the most, shoot a roll of film and then write captions for each of the pictures, put journal ideas in a jar and choose one each day, include sketches in your journal and journal entries in your sketchbook... (yes, I have a sketchbook too)...

Read: Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath, Dorothy Wordsworth's Illustrated Lakeland Journals, Journal to the Self by Kathleen Adams. The New Diary by Tristine Rainer, "Personal Journaling" magazine, Shelie Bender's Keeping a Journal you Love...
