The Journal Newsletter

October 2008

Introduction

Happy Halloween!

NaNoWriMo (www.nanowrimo.org) begins tomorrow. I won’t be participating this year (I’ll be focusing on The Journal’s next update), but all of you who are: Best of luck!

This month we have a couple new tips for customizing the entry tree display, and a new set of writing prompts.

Thank you for using DavidRM Software’s The Journal!

Tips & Tricks

TIP: Turning Off the Entry Time Stamp

If you don’t want to see the time stamp (of when the entry was created) in the entry tree, here is how you turn it off:

1. Right-click on the category tab and choose “Category Properties…”

2. Bring up the “Standard” tab.

3. Un-check the option: “Display date/time entry created”.

4. Click on “Done”.

TIP: Turning Off the Entry First Line Display

If you don’t want to see the first line of an entry displayed in your entry tree, here is how you turn that off:

1. Right-click on the category tab and choose “Category Properties…”

2. Bring up the “Standard” tab.

3. Un-check the option: “Display first line of entry in entry tree”.

4. Click on “Done”.

Writing Prompts

Free Writing Prompt – Write for 20 minutes using the following as your starter: “Black Frosting…”

Journaling Prompt – Do you have unquestioned beliefs? What are they? What has caused–or could cause–you to question them?

Memoir Prompt – Have you ever run for public office? Why or why not?

Submission Information

If you would like to contribute to the “How I Use The Journal”, “Writing Exercises”, or “Tips & Tricks” sections, or would like to submit an article about journaling, writing, or another The Journal-related topic, we would love to hear from you.

Submissions for the newsletter should be sent to: [email protected]

If you are submitting for a particular section, please indicate which one. Try to limit your submissions to 500-1000 words. Submissions may be edited for length and content.

If you prefer to remain anonymous, please state this in the email. Otherwise your name (but not your email) will be used in the article heading.

As always, if you have any suggestions for, or bug reports about, The Journal, please feel free to email them. Both are always welcome.
