The real news of our lives is not in newspapers. We must
chronicle our own adventures and achievements, our brilliant
observations and our comic relief, our best friends and our
greatest embarrassments. Visual Chronicles is all about
YOU: your dreams, your memories, your daily routines, your
greatest loves and your secret pet peeves. It’s all about
getting to know yourself better, savoring the wonderful ebb
and flow of your everydays, and celebrating it all in visual
mementos of your life journey.
Sound fun? Heck, yes!
Sound hard? Not a bit. Each chapter of Visual Chronicles
quiets common fears such as "Nothing happens in my life." or
"I’m just not artistic." with projects such as the "My Day
Unfolds Journal", and "Experiments with Composition."
Inside, you’ll learn that journaling doesn’t take big chunks
of time—just bits and pieces here and there, whenever the
spirit strikes. "Get Going" exercises offer instant ideas
such as listening to the conversations you have with
yourself or recognizing that meaningful ephemera is a part
of each and every day. Soon, you’ll see that inspiration
awaits all around you: a midnight trip to the store, a
favorite scarf, an unexpected phone call, junk email, your
breakfast plate . . .
Don’t wait another second. Make
creative journaling a part of your everyday life, busting
through self-doubt, time clocks, piles of laundry, and every
other roadblock along the way. With Visual Chronicles,
you’ll be inspired to tell your story the way only you can!
