Why I Keep a Journal

I’ve kept a journal off and on for years. More recently it was off. Now it’s back on. I try to write in it every day. Do I write my most secret, innermost thoughts? Not always. But I do skim the surface pretty good.

My journal is a form of therapy. I write about what is happening in my life – the good, the bad, and the ugly. I write about my questions, thoughts, and fears. It’s therapeutic. And it helps.

At this time in my life it seems to be important to write things down. For some reason, I have a lot of questions right now. I’m trying to figure some things out. I’ve trying to put some things in their place. Journaling is free. It’s the least expensive therapy out there!

Do you keep a journal? I’d like to hear about it.

I’ll talk to you soon.


Writing Tools

When you actually sit down to write posts for your blog – what tools do you have right there on your desk? I have a notebook and pen, my MacBook, and, believe it or not, my iPad. I also have a Dictionary handy, along with a Thesaurus.  What do you have with you when you write? I’d love to hear about it.
