There are no rules. You get to decide how you want to write in and use your journal. Your journal will be as unique as you because it is a reflection of you. Some of these suggestions are gleaned from Natalie Goldberg’s Writing Down the Bones (a fabulous and inspiring book on the practice of writing).
- Keep your hand moving.
- Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, grammar, or penmanship.
- Lose control.
- Be brave, look yourself and your life in the eye and be as truthful as you can.
- Begin each entry with the date at the top and where you are when you are writing.
