Does anyone else practice journaling before actually doing it on the right paper? I always have to practice first, to figure out what I need to say and to make sure it fits! Is this normal?

Yep, I consider that normal since I typically do that myself. If it's a short bit of journaling, I will occasionally write without practicing, but I almost always practice first on a scrap piece of paper.

hahaha, nope. I just write. I used to write in pencil, and then write over it in pen, but got out of that habit and now I just write. If I mess up terribly I usually keep an extra scrap of whatever I'm journaling on to make a small patch over it.

I do what Brittanie used to sometimes - write it in pencil then go over it. Usually I'll do that if I have a specific space to fill up.

I used to use a pencil but then could never erase it very well. The ink would smear or I'd have eraser flakes everywhere.

I'd be afraid to use pencil too! My MIL used pencil like that in DHs scrapbooks and I can see the lines.. I think it would drive me nuts! So I just write it out on a separate scrap paper... I try to use something that will likely be wasted anyway, like an icky color, or something where it won't show through so I can still use the other side.

I practice my journaling. I was never very good in English with sentence composition or spelling so I always like to write it out and make sure it sounds good before actually putting it on my page. I also do the pencil (really lightly) sometimes too.

Glad to see that I'm not alone in writing out ahead of time.
