FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I have no experience in journaling / This is my first time. Can I join the challenge?
Anyone can join! Doesn’t matter where you are in your creative journey or whether or not you have tried journaling. The important thing is to be open to try.
What journaling tools are needed?
Anything you have in your arsenal (ink, markers, pens, watercolours, washi tapes, stickers, etc.) and a copy of The ABCs of Journaling book.
How long is the challenge?
25 days spread out over 3 months. Don’t worry, we won’t do this every day! Only twice a week. You can still maintain your journaling habits.
What date/s should I post my artwork/s?
You may post anytime within the week. If you’d like to join me, post a day or two after the daily challenge prompt has been announced (e.g. I posted on Wednesday, you may post on Thursday or Friday).
I haven’t had time to catch up on the previous prompt. Can I still join?
Of course! I purposely didn’t do a continuous challenge to allot more time for practice. You may follow me on Instagram and check the hashtag #ABCsJournalingChallenge to track the list of prompts.
