I want you to now take the following pledge and write it at the front of your journal.
My name is ____________.
My secret name is _______________.
I hereby pledge to write at least two lines in this journal everyday until its pages are filled or it is lost in a fire or earthquake. I may write MORE than two lines if I choose, but I cannot write fewer than two. I give myself permission to write absolutely anything. It doesn’t have to be intelligent. It doesn’t have to be nice. It doesn’t have to funny. Of course if it happens to be all of these things that’s just fine. But the absolute only thing that my daily entries must be is two or more lines long (not counting the date).
Given by my hand on this ____ day of ______ in the year _______.
