An image of Bethany’s Journal I snapped after Writer’s Group.

Today I am opening up my place in the Blogosphere for another share from my talented local Rhode Island Writer’s Group. Bethany’s exquisite poem about her journal, not to mention that she brought the Red Beauty to class with her, made this hard-core Journal Keeper jump for joy. I asked her if I could share it with my online community and she said yes! Hooray for journal keepers everywhere!

Fellow Journal Keepers, consider this your reminder that Random Journal Day takes place THIS Friday! Yes, it’s that time again, so rummage through your archives and get that tattered page ready, I’ll be looking forward to peeking into your journal. If you have never participated consider this your official invitation. You can find out more by checking out the Journaling tab or just click here.
