So I’ve been having a lot of restless sleep lately. Usually when I wake up in the middle of the night, I get up and use the bathroom, have a glass of water and just listen to my audiobooks to try to relax as much as possible until I fall back asleep. Sometimes that doesn’t always work, and I am wide awake at 4 or 5 in the morning and I just need to do something.
I wanted something to do that would make me feel a little bit productive but still let me lay in bed and relax. The Write365 app was developed by Campfire Chic (one of my favorite people in the world) in order to break you out of writer’s block — I used it to break me out of sleeper’s block. This is just really great in a pinch when you need someone else to decide what you want to document or write about. Here’s a little bit about Write365 from Kam herself:
The Write365 app was built for creative writers and bloggers looking for inspiration for the next story or blog post. It is a simple yet addictive creative writing tool for Creatives. With a simple tap, unleash hundreds of creative writing prompts specifically designed to battle writer’s block and inspire original storytelling.
I opened the app, picked out a favorite prompt, hit the email button and started journaling right in an email to myself — this way I would be able to copy and paste it right here into the blog. This was such a perfect night activity, because I didn’t need to put any effort into remembering where my journaling was the next day — I just opened up my email and everything was ready to go.
Remember — your journaling is whatever you want it to be. No one is forcing you to write out complex sentences or your entire treatise on a given topic. I chose to write out my journaling in lists of five things, quick, easy, and totally enough information — I plan on incorporating these little lists into either my Project Life album, or even give them a mini-album all their own. Here are a few of the topics I journaled about the other night.
