Time Out

I meant to do this 10-Minute Journaling last Friday, but didn’t get to it until today. I worked Friday and yesterday, but did take time out to see a movie. I’m wrapping up Art Doodle Love because it goes to the printer July 11. I think we’re getting closer to a final cover. I will show the cover here as soon as I get the green light from my editor. The interior has been edited and proofed, and I made those corrections to the text yesterday but still need to revise a couple of the backgrounds. Once I’m done with it, I move on to my next doodle book for girls and writing and shooting workshops.

Last week, a writer I greatly admired left this earth. Nora Ephron was, well, what can I say that hasn’t been said already? There are so many great articles and tributes to her out there. I watched a tribute to her on CBS This Morning, where (at the end) Charlie Rose read a list she wrote of what she’d miss. So I want to do that for this 10-Minute Journaling, as a tribute to her but also as a tribute to ourselves. I think it’s great to do this prompt in your journal once in a while. It reminds you of the little things.

She also wrote a list of what she wouldn’t miss. You can read both here, on the Huffington Post.

You can do both lists or just one in your journal. Here’s mine:

I think it goes without saying I’d miss my family and friends dearly. :)
