The Next Chapter: Wreck This Journal

 I visited Rachel at The Metaphorical Magpie as I did my rounds of the blogs I read regularly and she posted about joining a blog book group  called The Next Chapter that is reading "Wreck This Journal" by Keri Smith starting this Friday.  If you are interested in participating, click here.

I have had the book for about a month now, but I have not been able to do anything with it...I have a thing about damaging, messing with, bending pages in books and magazines.  I thought it would be a good exercise in getting over this fear/anxiety.  Shannon at Bird Star had shown me her copy, as well, right when it was new.  She was the 3rd or 4th person to talk about the book, then when I saw the book group, I decided that might be something I could do in a group - even if it is with bloggers and other people I don't really know.  That's the beauty of it - safety in numbers and still doing my own thing.  I think I like it.

I had to work until late tonight, so I will be posting more about wrecking when I get to do it.  I didn't want to rush through it tonight, so I decided to wait.  I will post week 1 and 2 next Friday.  This is so exciting.  I feel like I'm finding myself again - lots of activities, creativity and new things.
