notebooks

So I start this new world, this weblog, somewhat overwhelmed. I read my favorite writers and feel I have to be as eloquent. Ain't gonna happen, let me tell you. I have my moments, but for the most part I get too nervous when I *try* to be all that. My best work comes when I relax and just write, not trying to impress anyone or myself per se. It is one of the reasons why even though I have bought numerous beautiful journals to keep with me and write my deepest thoughts in, I end up writing in a spiral notebook. The notebook demands nothing from me. The notebook accepts me as I am, no matter what I say or how I say it. I can doodle, write my grocery list, make plans and poems in it. I am freer than if I were writing in a beautiful journal.

I guess I need to think of this as a spiral bound with college rules rather than a leather bound with gold edging.
