Wreck This Journal, Week 1

I feel like such a dork. A month or more ago I signed up to participate in the Wreck This Journal read-along. And I sat waiting for some kind of "OK, we're up and running" email, which never came. Finally, I went over to the blogsite for it to see if I had written down the date wrong but there was everybody, in full wrecking swing, as it were. Now I've frozen - eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! So I did a page at the beginning - "Crack The Spine". See? Perfectly cracked.


I can't even remember how long this process runs for - I'm claiming peri-menopausal syndrome where my hormones take over my brain, leaving me and it devastated and gasping for breath. I might be up to another page tomorrow.

Don't feel bad. I've had the book for months and haven't cracked the spine yet ... I did sleep with it though. :D

My book just arrived on Saturday so I am just beginning too but once started, it is hard to stop!

Here's to cracking the spine and diving in!

I'm sorry you didn't get the email. I sent one early last week as a reminder that we were starting. Maybe it ended up in your junkmail. Do you have a way to add me to your 'safe senders' list?

I don't think you're a dork...I think you signed up thinking there would be a word about a beginning...I could see myself doing something similar. But don't you just hate to be late to the party??

I saw your note on Kim's blog about being ambivalent about coaching. I finally hired a coach and I am finding the process fantastic. email me at katespin@yahoo.com if you have questions. I'd be glad to share.

i was wondering what a cracked spine looked like, so thank you for the pictures!!

Melita said...

i used to work at a bookstore so to find a book with a cracked spine always made us a bit mad as we had to send it back. so, one of the first things i did to mine was crack the spine!! :)

If you equate the spine with the central nervous system, you have made a huge step. Now you're all set to go for the jugular. hehehe (ps Breaking the spine was the first thing I did, too.)

I started with the crumple page but just you wait, this book is adicting and creatively freeing. Happy Wrecking!

Sharon said...

Great Start! I also started with cracking the spine. And now my journal is sticky and wordy and has a number - only one number. Tee hee!

Danette said...

That was so cute. A creative way to document a cracked spine. An excellent entrance.
