I believe this is what you would call a "froo-fee" thread... But:
I've always been completely terribly at keeping a hard, physical copy of a journal. I really want to, but I have so much time setting aside time to do it and I tell myself I will do it before bed, but by the time I make it to bed, I just want to sleep and have no interest in writing, and if I do - it always ends up being a to-do list. I've been writing down big dates, like when we had our ultra sound and found out we were having a boy, when I first felt his movement and when DP first felt his movement... But I would like to write more.
If anyone does journal, what encourages you to do it? Do you have a certain time of day that you sit down and write? Do you pretend you're writing to someone else?
