Made for writing, Midori's MD Paper line takes into consideration the writer's comfort. The paper is smooth and designed to prevent smearing and bleeding through.
A frame around the page leaves plenty of space to create, even in the margins.
If you write down the title and date in the small box at the top, "MD Note Journal" will quickly turn into a diary. But the layout is open and customizable. There's no rules, make it your own.
