I have really been wanting to focus more on the storytelling aspect
and find that typing my journaling gives me more room and more
opportunity to "think it out."
Spellcheck. Normally, spelling is not a problem, but with an increase
in the amount of journaling, spellcheck is a great backup in case my
brain, eyes, and English degree fail.
I can play around with journaling placement. When I write directly
on my layout, I cannot go back and change it. It is there for life
whether I like it or not.
This last reason recently resulted in this layout:
Lately I have been liking a title placed on it's side, so I thought, why not do the same with my journaling?? By pre-printing my journaling on a regular sheet of paper, I was able to easily adjust its placement to make room for the other elements of my layout as well as decide if I actually like it.
