      Hi all,

      My handwriting is atrocious and I don’t particularly enjoy writing because of it, but I’m keen to document my journey. Does anyone else journal digitally? By typing or through audio? Any other ideas?

        You could use a wordprocessor to keep a written copy of your journal this might help you a bit. I am keeping a written journal which I am finding to be very useful. I don’t think the handwriting really matters what counts is what you write inside your journal and how you use it.


          Hello Darkforest, the druids were the keepers of herb lore, divination, spell craft, clan history and story craft, and communicators with the Celtic Otherworld. they did not write things down because they did not want the knowledge to get into the wrong hands. now, the term is interchangeable with Neo-paganism. you might like the books of Kristopher Hughes, and he has a website. Kristopher is a druid.

            Kristoffer Hughes is very good indeed, well worth reading and indeed listening to, he has appeared on the OBOD Druidcast he was speaking about death and bodies he is or was a mortician at one point, that got a little bit disturbing sometimes people’s spiritual messages can take you to some dark places. I was going to point out that we have the Ogham language and inscriptions, at some point the Druids changed their minds and starting writing down messages or at least certain messages, there are some things which can only be shared through experience.


              Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for your replies and support. I’m looking into Christopher Hughes right now. x


                Hi 🙂 Although I’ve done handwritten journalling for years, I recently switched to digital journalling. This is partly to do with how lots of thoughts, ideas, inspiration come through whilst I’m walking, and I find it easier to jot that down using my phone than by hand-scribbling. I compile my notes into a Word document. I appreciate the facility to search digital text rather than by turning over numerous written pages. I still have a hand-created Bardic journal using an artist book, and other hand-made elements, but my main notes are now in digital form.

                  Hello Adam!

                  Today I started writing my journal too, in the past (and maybe in the future) I had the same problem with handwriting. So I decided to purchase a epaper tablet (remarkable2) since it changes your handwriting to digital form, also this tablet is the closest experience to writing in paper, let us motivate each other because keeping a journal is very hard for me nevertheless necessary.

                  Keep calm and continue writing,
                  Spyro M.
