How to Keep Your Journal PRIVATE
How to Journal in Public
Do you keep a journal or diary? Do you ever feel the need to write about your experiences in public? It can be tricky to write about private things in a public place, but with a careful approach, you can do it without drawing too much attention to yourself.
Bring your journal with you.You cannot write in it if you don't have it! When you're getting from place to place, though, consider stowing it in a purse or bag to avoid drawing too much attention to your private writing.
Find somewhere comfortable to write.Writing in public can be a bit trickier than writing in the privacy of your room or office. Find a spot where you can sit and write comfortably, without being right in the center of attention. When you've got a good spot, take your journal out of your purse/bag/fanny pack and open it to a clean page.
- If you want, before you start writing, you can go somewhere less busy, such as the corner of a party, or exit the room.
Just write!Journal writing is a personal experience and pursuit, so you don't have to announce it. There's no guarantee someone will even notice.
Be calm about onlookers or questions.If someone notices, don't lie. Just say you have personal things to write down - you don't have to elaborate on what you're doing or why you're doing it now. Steer the conversation towards writing or journaling in general, without focusing on the private thoughts you're documenting (unless you want to). It may even start a conversation!
Avoid making a big deal out of it.Remember, there is nothing bad about keeping a diary or a journal. Just do your thing, and write down your thoughts when you feel the need. When you're done, you can return to whatever other activities you were doing before.
- If public journal writing becomes a "big deal" for you for some reason, you can always hold off until you're in a private place. If desired, you can jot down a couple of basic words and thoughts while in public so that you don't forget them, and then elaborate on them in private.
- Do not lie. They will most likely find out anyway.
- Make sure no one is behind you, or they might see from behind what you are writing. Although this isn't a really big problem, if it inhibits your free thinking and writing, then it should be guarded against. Generally speaking, when others read such journal entries (even if you specifically permit them), they wont understand what you are writing about, because it is YOUR train of thought. Usually they will get it wrong, and under worst circumstances, they will think you're crazy. Don't let this bother you. These writings are always a work in progress.
