A new way to journal

I was filling in a comment form on some wonderful blog or other a couple of nights ago, when the words "Choose an identity" gave me an idea. How wonderful would it be if we could actually do this in the analogue world?!

"Who would I like to be today?" could be a question we could ask ourselves just after the usual "What do I feel like for breakfast?" (or before - bizarre breakfast possibilities are springing to mind.)
But journaling in this way is the only way I've found to transfer this digital possibility to the real world - so far!!! (I'd kinda like a stamp made of this to make it easier to do on a daily basis...)

I would like scrambled eggs and scotch.

That is so very cool. I love the idea of playing with identity offline (and online of course). What a great way to journal. It would give you a whole different way of thinking about a particular thing, since it's not 'you' writing it, but someone else.

Fabulous!

Now this is neat. You're drawing your writing. And making up your own comments would be sort of like Bobby Fischer playing himself at chess.

I love the idea of doing this -- and a stamp that would make it easier sounds like a good idea! You are so creative ...

Great idea! I generally end up being somebody by accident and then having to pick up the pieces. And not usually somebody I want to be. Maybe I'll wake up tomorrow and say "today I'm gonna be a rock star!"
