You know, I was really excited about creating these journals. Like, really excited. Mostly because I haven’t been able to find large journals lately, and I knew if I wanted one, someone else would want one as well. However, my efforts at releasing them are feeling lackluster. I feel like I’ve been talking about them so much, but then I’m like, “oh, wait, I haven’t told anybody where they can buy them!”
So, here I am… telling you where you can buy them! [rolls eyes in self-shame]
Hear me now, these aren’t your average 80-page low-content journals. These journals are nice, thick, heavy, hardcover journals. Each containing 300+ useable pages. I wouldn’t create anything for you that I wouldn’t use myself. I’ve been the person who bought a $15 “book ” on Amazon only for it to show up in an envelope and appear to be more of a pamphlet (this thing was literally 70-80 pages. I was hot.). I didn’t return it, though, because I should’ve been paying attention to the details before I bought it.
Anyway, my point is there was actual passion and effort put into these journals—they weren’t just thrown together. And while these may be the only stationery products I have for a while, this is just the beginning of what I want to create.
Okay, about the journals…
The Growing Tree Journal (which is what I should’ve titled it on KDP in the first place [face palm]) is a 300+ page lined hardcover journal for general journaling.
As the pages go by, you’ll see some growth—in the images, but also (hopefully) in yourself. The Growing Tree Journal is great for people who have lots of thoughts to get out at the end of the day (or whenever the need arises). The unprompted and undated lined pages allow for your thoughts to flow freely for as long as you need.
The Daily Reflection Journal contains an introduction as well as 366 prompted journal pages—one for every day (including an extra for leap year). This hardcover daily journal is undated, so you can begin your journaling whenever you like, and it will still carry you through a year.
There are 4 prompts on each page to use as an evening reflection. There is also a mid-year reflection section with some additional questions. The Daily Reflection Journal is especially useful for those who want to journal but don’t know what to write.
What’s better than choosing one journal? Choosing both! That’s what I do. I use a daily prompted journal as well as an unprompted lined journal. Most days I only use the prompted journal, but there are many times I need to elaborate on my thoughts or process an interaction, and I can only do that through free writing in my lined journal.
Both of the journals are available to purchase on Amazon. You can find the links to both journals as well as my collection of essays and short stories at ninentwopress.com.
And if you do grab one (or both) of these journals, I would love to hear how you like them. I intend to make more journal sets in the future, and if I can make them better, that’s exactly what I want to do.
Thanks (as always) for being on this journey with me.
