Handwriting to Typing of My Journal (and My Best Journaling)

I really wish I wasn't this way. And yet, I am. Much to my chagrin. 

The absolute best journaling I ever do is handwritten. I have tried for decades, literally, to change this, but it has been at no avail.

I am a journal keeper. I have been for over thirty-nine years. Nonetheless, more specifically, I am a paper and pen journal keeper. 

Then, to make matters worse, I like to type up my handwritten material and get it saved in multiple ways digitally. Needless to say, this really takes a great deal of time. 

I am in the process of typing up my journaling from the last five days and have discovered my brain is working a million miles per hour and I am coming up with all sorts of other things to journal. Sigh. Therefore, I am adding to my journaling as I type things up and that is good, but again, time is not my friend. I wish I had more hours in my day. 

The difference of digital verses paper and pen journaling for me is staggering. The quality and the depth is unmatched. I get so much more captured on the page when I do paper and pen journaling, but then add typing it up, I add even more as I go. 

So this is what I am doing right now. I am trying to type up my handwritten paper and pen journaling, adding more material as more things come to mind and in my heart. 

The beauty about all of this is journaling is how I pray, so I am able to spend a lot of time with the Lord and that is never wasted time. It's always a good thing.
