how to

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).

  1. Keep your hand moving.
  2. Don’t worry about spelling, punctuation, grammar, or penmanship.
  3. Lose control.
  4. Be brave, look yourself and your life in the eye and be as truthful as you can.
  5. Begin each entry with the date at the top and where you are when you are writing.
