This is where you will write the actual content of your journal. It must be formatted as a list of strings, with each string containing one page of text. The order of the pages in the journal is the same as the order of the strings in the list.

Example:

['My First Journal',
 'This is page 2 of the journal (page 1 was the title page).',
 'This is page three.',
 "If you want apostrophes, you'll need to use double quotes."]
