To write in a journal



12973041_10208646307412429_7302323271562789593_oSTUDIO UPDATE:  The other day I came across a word in someone’s post.  This word is one that grates on my nerves every time I see it or hear it—journaling.

As a writer I do write in a journal, every day.

I keep a journal, every day.

I carry a journal with me everywhere I go, every day.

I write in my journal but I don’t journal anything.

PLEASE, I beg of you, “journaling” is not a verb, let alone a word.

Simply state: I wrote in my journal today.  It was gratifying.

You don’t have to add the “It was gratifying.” if it wasn’t.
