Well my family would describe me as slightly obsessive about things! I have numerous empty journals and notebooks that I can't use for fear of ruining them! I buy 2 of everything I like so as to not spoil one, and I even take a picture of my bookshelves before I dust them so my toys all go back in the same place! Scared yet? The list of oddities could go on!
So to help me overcome these problems and have some fun whilst doing it, I bought myself a wreck journal!!
1. Carry this with you EVERYWHERE you go!
2. Follow the instructions on every page.
3. Order is not important.
4. Instructions are open to interpretation.
5. Experiment! (Work against your better judgement!)

Firstly...I carried it back and forwards in my bag to get used to it getting slightly bashed about!
Then I opened it at a random page..
And as instructed I....wait for it...hold your breath...cracked the spine!!!
Waaah! It nearly broke my heart to do it, but I made a good start!
Anyway, after that totally out of character book bending, I chose a page that was more me... A doodling page. I had to cover the page with circles, here's the result..
Inspired by the lovely sunny day we ended up having down here!
Wow! I am already feeling slightly less controlled :) Not to mention excited for the weird and wonderful things this little book may have in store for me tomorrow!!
