An annual April experiment in creating a Fake Journal~ FAKE: pretend, simulate; counterfeit; to alter.manipulate.
or treat as to impart a false character or appearance.

A fun exercise in pretending to be someone else, maybe in an alternate universe!

Who Will Be Creating My Fake Journal?

2015 is the fourth year that I plan to create a
Fake Journal.
A 'Fake Journal' is actually a real art journal,
but the character who creates it is fake.
Basically I pretend to be someone else.
I try to do things that I normally wouldn't do.

That can be difficult.  But it can also open up
new avenues of expression. It can be freeing.
So when you visit, and you know me from
don't be alarmed that I might be journaling
things that are unfamiliar. Weird even.

When I was a 'shaman' in 2013, I wrote about 
the spirits of trees and animals.  I tried to put
myself within the mind of a shaman. But that's
not my religion. And I got some comments 
trying to evangelize me into Christianity!
Made me laugh. Obviously somebody
missed the FAKE part...
Usually I try to be a very genuine individual,
and we should all remember that not everyone
on-line is being honest!  But be aware--
the Fake Journal is just for fun,
and there will be a 'Reveal' at the 
end of April, to explain my goals, the 
process, and how it all went.

No idea what I'm doing this year...
just winging it. Join me to
see how it goes!
