STUDIO 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.

You know, I had never though about that. It makes complete sense though. I wouldn’t say, “I’m journaling” anyway. Saying, “I’m writing in my journal” should be enough. You wouldn’t say “I’m diarying” would you? That sounds like a completely different problem 😛
I’m going to start, as soon as i can afford it, Write a research journal.
