Journaling for creativity.

Sometimes when I am suffering from the dreaded WB I journal. I have a book of journaling sparks to get me started.

Easy things to start with are:

  • talk about your day–find something funny that happened to you, your spouse or a pet.
  • pet peeves
  • rant about current events or a neighbour
  • write poetry if you are so inclined
  • count your blessings or create a silver linings playbook of your own
  • gratitude journal

This topic was inspired by a Mood disorder group meeting we had about Journaling. It was done for different reasons but it made me think-It does happen occasionally-about how  Journaling can motivate us to work on the bigger projects as well as cure WB.

I write comedy in mine and blogging for write minds and other groups. This keeps me fresh for novel writing.

http://www.writingsparks.com- a place to get prompts for creative writing.

http://www.gather.com -I belong to writing essentials where daily editors give assigments on a given theme. It trains me to focus and not go off on a tangent.  e.g.pet peeves was today’s assignment.

There are no set rules to journaling; just use your own personal style.
