Jana Bouc has written to share her fake journal with me and enter the contest. She has a great idea on how to build her fake journal. I think it is always a great idea when you can make the fake journal have a game or playful aspect to it and she has found an interesting exploration tool, linking music and self-discovery that will help to keep her fake journal author motivated all month. (I love that all the songs have the same title.) Here are Jana's comments:
I’m filling a journal this month as a woman who doesn’t know who she is and is trying to find out. (Maybe she’ll learn how she lost her memory too.) I started by Googling “Who Am I” and clicked the first link, a YouTube video by Casting Crowns which inspired the rose and waves besides my pondering self.
Since Google led me to a song, I followed that lead to iTunes and found more than 100 songs named “Who Am I.” I shall play detective, listening to each song, reading the lyrics looking for clues to who “I” am. I'm looking forward to Snoop Dogg's "Who Am I" day. As I write and draw what I learn I’ll fill the journal and by the end of the month may have discovered my true identity.
I'm also pasting the lyrics to the songs in the journal and have exported the list of songs and artists from iTunes to an Excel spreadsheet to better track which I've used.
If the text is unreadable it says:
"Who am I? I am a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow, a wave tossed in the ocean, a vapor in the wind."
