Tips for journal writing
Write quickly, allowing the words to freefall from your subconscious.
Keep writing. Don’t erase or cross
-out any words. If
you’re heading in a direction you would rather avoid,
start a new paragraph. These accidental forays may betelltale signs for issues you need to address. And erasing just takes more time that you could be using to focus on you.Date each entry in your journal. Note the time, place,and any details regarding your mood and emotions that will be necessary for context when you read back on your work.After you have finished a journal entry, take a walk or get up for a glass of water before you reread your entry, and remember to reread this entry with compassion. Then, write an Insight Line--a sentence or two about what you think the piece is trying to tell you.Sometimes this Insight is as plain as day. Other times, it will take a little reading between the lines. If the subject is a delicate one, there is nothing wrong with putting off re-reading it for a few hours, days, even weeks. Someentries you may not read again at all. The Insight comes from the act of writing itself, the Insight Linesimply helps you discover it.
