Q & A a Day: Short Attention Span Journaling

Five-year journals are nothing particularly new, I believe they were readily available in Victorian times, for example. The difference between standard journals and Q & A A DAY: 365 Questions, 5 Years, 1,825 Answers and the rest of the pack is that each calendar day (including February 29th) has a writing prompt in the form of a question, request or fill-in-the-blank statement. Today's was 'The weather outside is _______" for example.  The book is fairly sturdy with nicely gilded page edges. I can see this lasting me five years. I think the enjoyment will kick in after the first full year, when I can begin to look back at previous year's answers.
I have had trouble keeping up a journal despite my love of writing. I tend to make a nice entry or seven, then lose them. When I find them later I enjoy reading my entries, but am frustrated by my lack of sticktoitiveness. I think keeping this small (roughly six by four inch) book beside my chair will be eminently doable. Time will tell.
