the art of layouting private journals

by minima whatever

I have perfected the layout of my handwritten journaling. How to write the headings, dates, how to mark emphasis in the text. Every new journal gets its proper margins determined with help from the canons of page construction. At some point I have picked up how to write in straight lines on blank paper without needing any guides any more. Where the page numbers go.

Funny how much effort I put into something that will likely never entertain anyone but me (even if I wish it did). I would so love to see the journals of other people who obsess about these things. Funny also how much satisfaction I derive from this. Such a useless obsession. I may die poor, but my journals will be exquisite to behold.
