Quick journals are for those fleeting, disconnected thoughts we all have that are worth writing down. This type of journal is entirely up to the writer. You can write one sentence, or a single word to describe your day. It’s fun and easy!

Art Journal

Now this one isn’t exactly writing, but it does qualify as journaling. Art journals are some of the most fun as they are a great way to test out new mediums and styles. You can combine photographs, little scribbles, and all sorts of things.

Travel Journal

A travel journal isn’t as high maintenance as other journals, it’s something you only update while going on new trips trying new things. It’s especially fun to look over your first impressions of new places after time has passed!
