Are you a little nervous when you hear scrapbookers talking about journalling, telling epic stories, or other well-intentioned, but overwhelming approaches to storytelling?
Even if you love writing, you can still feel the need to get that story down without feeling like you are writing a novel.
That’s where Angie Lucas comes in – she’s got an new class coming to Big Picture Scrapbooking: Grammar Free Journalling. I figured I’ll let her explain in her own words…
That’s right, no punctuation required. No sentence structure. No verb-object agreement.* I’m going to show you a dozen different ways to tell super cool stories with absolutely no paragraphs required.
It may sound a bit odd for a word nerd and professional editor like myself to be eschewing grammar in this way. But I firmly believe that long, paragraph-style journaling is only one way to approach a story. I’ve been employing grammar-free journaling on my scrapbooking layouts for years, and I’d love to show you just how freeing it can be to write in lists, quizzes, charts, graphs, single sentences, single words, and even a teeny tiny bit of poetry.
Are you ready to set yourself free? Join me starting February 14th! It’s where everyone who’s anyone will be spending their Valentine’s Day.
*That was a lie. All of my verbs and objects will be in complete harmony with one another. I cannot help it. But you, on the other hand, are free to write journaling with highly disagreeable verbs, and I will not say a thing

- Four informative videos from Angie
- A Grammar-Free Journaling Handbook you’ll refer to throughout the class and perhaps for the rest of your life
