• The Whimsical Arcane

DIGITAL JOURNALING WITH WRITUAL PLANNER


Cancer Season was and always has been an intense shadow work season for me and that usually means more time spent reflecting and journaling. I usually turn to art (@whimsicalwinters) when this happens as a way for me to express emotions I have not successfully processed yet and so when I got my 2022 Writual Tarot Journal (Digital), I knew that I’ll be using it for my creative journey.


I've been using physical journals for a decade and has only started digital journaling when I finally bought an iPad back in 2012-ish (?). Back then I only use apps like Paper, To-Do, Notability to write down my stuff. Short story is I was not entirely having fun with it. The game changed when Apple launched the Apple Pencil in 2015 because now I can write and doodle or sketch.


I started the digital journaling life late because I stumbled upon Study to Success' YT channel and got introduced with GoodNotes. Even with all these resources, I still wasn't committed to it because life gets busier and busier.


Here are the top reasons why I couldn't commit to it or admittedly lose my interest:


  1. There's a significant sensation from physical journals that I like - the texture of paper and the friction of my pen to paper

  2. Physical journals doesn't have batteries

  3. no time


I think there's a sweet spot we have to find with digital planner and here's how I managed to turn things around.

  1. To replicate the physical journal sensation, I purchased a paperlike texture screen protector and the experience is wild - like really writing / doodling on a piece of paper.

  2. Because the pandemic has changed 99% of my life and has been the reason for my loving my hermit life more, I don't have to worry about running out of iPad battery.

  3. Because I've been using my iPad like an extension of my arm, I can just easily switch from Procreate to GoodNotes when I have aha moments.
