There’s a book called Wreck This Journal. My friend Scarlet posted a photo of the inside cover on instagram the other day, and that prompted me to look up the book. After reading some great reviews, including one where someone poured a cup of coffee over the book in freezing temperatures, then thawed it out on a radiator after it froze outside, it was speaking to me. So far I have dipped the book in coffee, numbered all the pages, and broke the book’s spine. Break the spine is on page 3, I believe. It was much harder than I expected, and it felt pretty good.
It’s very liberating writing in, and destroying this book. I always get nice notebooks and take a long time to start using them because they’re nice and I’m dumb. This is a great way for me to get anything out of my head, knowing that most of the book will be destroyed by the time I’m done. It’s a lot of fun.
I’m still gonna use nice pens, but I’m not anxious to use them at all.
