“I’m not sure where to start” is a common cry with anything new!
Whether that be the first gleaming white page in a new travel journal or your new Map Journal.
Making that first mark on your Map Journal can be a little daunting ~ but remember there’s no such thing as a ‘bad’ mark or ‘messy’ mark – Whatever mark you make is simply part of your story.
However, like artists who have their sketch pads to practice on there’s no harm in having a little trial run – Practice does make perfect!
If you feel nervous about making a mess or a mark you’re not going to be happy with, make some cheap photocopies of some of the jotting boxes and then really let loose 😀
However, this is only a short term confidence builder! Don’t practice and plan so much that the entries become contrived –
Spontaneity is the key to really sparking those memories back to life in years to come!
