Last week I discussed Journaling Supplies, detailing various types of notebooks and pens available in the marketplace. And I suggested you experiment with several different styles to determine which one(s) work best for your writing temperament.
But I know there are times when electronic journaling is preferred. This will be the focus of today’s post.
Privacy is a real concern when it comes to journaling.
To begin a journaling routine is simple. All you need is something to write with, something to write on, and a desire to write.
You can easily start with supplies you already have on hand: either a computer or tablet with word processing capabilities, or if you prefer the old-fashioned way, pen and paper. However, I would advise experimenting with a variety of supplies to decide which method works best for your writing style.
I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear. ~ Joan Didion
I started journaling about three years ago. I always loved the idea of journaling – keeping a diary – but somehow I never followed through with those intentions. After experiencing a mild mid-life crisis in early 2013, however, my counselor prescribed expressive journaling as therapy. I have not stopped writing since.
