IH8FMS - I don't think it is necessarily important for you to have more than one journal if that is what works for you. Some of us like to compartmentalize our thoughts and ideas and some of don't. I think if you have found a method that allows to you deliver and continue stream of thought that you should revel in it. My two cents anyway.

Cassie - I think you have hit on a very therapeutic way of handling your grief as well as creating a keep sake for future reference. Great idea.

I used to keep multiplet journals and it just got too confusing. . .What I have found is that those with multiple journals usually journal electronically

I have just two journals, and they work out very well for me. One is for my personal issues, and the other is a memorial to my deceased boyfriend, where I can remember things and talk to him there for my personal healing in regards to his passing. I would not want my other personal topics mixed into his journal, and vice versa.

I used to write music and had a somewhat daily diary journal. I found it very helpful to separate the two, as the music journal was my creative side, which allowed me to experiment, whereas my daily journal was filled with more logical thoughts and details. I never wanted to mix the two up.

[quote=IH8FMS]One of the reasons that I have never gone for separate journals is because I get into writing and my thoughts just kind of segue from one thing to another pretty rapid-fire and I'm thinking if I had more than one journal I'd get all mixed up... I'm easily confuzzled! So, those of you with multiple journals, how do you deal with that and keep them straight? Is there repetition, or when you start veering off into a topic for another journal, do you write[i] See other journal[/i], or what? [/quote] :fish:I write the topic of each journal on the first page of each journal. :wall: [i][/i][b][/b]

Thank you. I do like having the two separate journals, and the one I dedicate to my boyfriend has really helped me to release my grief.

Romance......no, I don't get my thoughts and writings mixed up or repeated in my two journals. They are two very separate topics.

I have multiple journals. But sometimes it does get confusing. My first journal is a daybook where I capture whatever random thing be it a shopping list or a quote I like or a personal epiphany. The second journal is a diary type of journal and this is where I write out my thoughts at length and deal with emotions.

Then there are my notebooks and binders. These are separated by topic such as "creativity," "life lessons," "books read," and "writing." Because this method took up space, I went ahead and started transferring information into Evernote.

This has been fun to think about! What a good topic....

It kind of circles back to what (in my opinion)is the VERY BEST thing about journal-writing... you can totally do it YOUR WAY! No having to follow anyone else's rules. You can read about journaling, take whatever of the ideas you want, and leave the rest!
