Love journaling and writing? Love photos of it? This is the blog for you!
There are many groups and blogs out there featuring artwork in journals, but few - if any - for sharing the beauty of one's handwriting in a notebook. That's where Journal Porn comes in, to appease those of us who love a page filled up with our words.

Vladimir Nabokov’s handwriting.
As children we gazed
upon unintelligible scrawlings,
a yearning in our eyes
not quite understood.
We learned to connect our letters
so gracefully, rhythmically,
that English felt like music.
We fell in love with our letters
and out of love just as quickly.
If you were to write me
a letter, just one,
and I could read your emotions
in the ebb and flow of your words
(over the boat,
under the boat)
I would smile as your pen smiled
and cry as your tears
stained the page.
I miss how it was
when I did not exist.
Maybe I am a romantic,
but if you write me a letter
so plainly yours,
I may just fall in love.
Cursive is a language in itself.
Homework outside on a sunny day. Simple pleasures. #amwriting #masonjar #samadams #summerale
