In the previous video, you created a cover page for your photo journal.

In this video, you will create your first journal entry.

You will add a page break, create a heading, insert another photo from a web search, and write about the photo and the moment or event that inspired it To start, add a page break after your cover page.

A page break starts a new page in your document.

You could press enter multiple times to go to the next page, but a page break prevents future changes to the content on one page from disrupting the content on the next page.

After your page break, title the first entry of your journal.

This might be a day of the week, month of the year, specific activity, or project title Your title should reflect the topic of the entry and the larger theme of the journal.

If you’re not sure what you want to title your first entry, that’s okay!

Sometimes it’s easier to think of a title after you’re done writing.

Title it Entry 1, if you’d like.

Then, change the style of the text to differentiate it from the cover page title and the rest of the text.

Next, insert another photo.

This image should be about this specific entry.

For example, if your photo journal is about your summer vacation, the image for your first entry could be about what you did in the month of June.

Add one of your own photos, or use a web search to insert a photo.

Follow the same steps you used in the previous video.

Choose something that represents your own experience.

Don’t forget to look for photos in the public domain, or source the image to its owner.

Next, press enter to go to the space below the picture.

Write at least three sentences about your image and what it means to you.

Consider why you chose this picture, what memory it captures, what you were doing in the picture, and what makes it meaningful to you and your experience.

The photo is a brief moment in time.

Use details and descriptions of the experience that aren’t shown in the photograph, too.

Finally, go back and update your title with something more descriptive if you need to.

Now, it’s your turn.

Insert a page break after your cover page.

Choose a title for your first journal entry.

Add an image from your Drive or the internet, and write three sentences about the image and what it means to you based on the theme of your journal.
