I'd rather swing on the moon than a star.

One thing I recently figured out is that if I type what I want to write on the computer and then put my piece of paper over the screen, it acts like a lightbox so I can then trace the words onto the paper.  That way the journaling can have the personal touch of being in your own writing, but a really neat and organized version of your own writing.  You can even trace really complicated fonts and everyone who looks at it will think you are some kind of calligraphy master! Also, you can use paper and ink that you know is acid free. 

I've also used this technique to trace larger letters that I could cut out.  It's a bit intricate, but much cheaper than buying a die-cut machine or something.

Good luck!

I wish I could do that for large letters ,but I have a laptop and the screen is pretty sensitive to pressure!

I do both hand written and computer journaling. Lately I've been just focusing on the pics though and handwriting all of my journaling on the backs of my LOs. I tend to get embarrassed when people read my stuff (I'm afraid they'll think I'm cheesy or whatever) so for me that's a good way to both document what I'm scrapping and keep my face from turning red.
