Bullet Journal - Large or Small

In my last post, I shared the start of my bullet journal journey.
It was working quite well, so I decided to go ahead and order a Moleskine large dotted notebook from When it arrived, I was shocked at how small it was. My handwriting is not naturally small. This seemed like an impossibility.

I had also ordered an assortment of pens based on recommendations online, but that's another story.

Here they are - Moleskine at the top, current notebook (with weekly layout) at the bottom:
Once again, not wanting to "waste" that $20 notebook, I thought I'd first see if writing this tiny would actually work.
I measured the Moleskine pages and drew them out in the larger notebook. Also note that the dots in the Moleskine are only 5mm apart. For those not used to the metric system, that's about 3/8"!

Here's my attempt at entering my weekly layout in that tiny space. Not good, not good at all!

I figured that maybe I didn't have the right pen, so I tried out different options and decided that, if I had a finer pen, and with some practice, this may actually work.

Here's my first weekly layout in the Moleskine:

This is going to be a functional organizational tool, not a work of art. Although there are some stunning examples out there, that is not my priority.

This is an evolving process, so stay tuned for more posts on how it develops.
