One of the things that I keep in the back of my mind while journaling is this idea that one day, my grandkids or great grandkids may be able to read them and know something about me. Sure my journal contains some of my inner most thoughts, but hey, when you’re dead, you probably won’t be embarrassed. Morbid, I know, but you get the point. I love this idea that bumping around in their attic they may uncover a dusty trunk full of notebooks that were passed down from their mom’s mom and so on. My journals not only keep me sane, they are my story. And who better to tell it than me?
Getting into Writers Write, I personally feel that writers should write all the time. It’s a great way to constantly come up with new ideas and just to be able to express yourself even when you are not writing for an audience. Many people have asked me how I am able to write every single day! I am not talking about just blog posts, but in addition to blogging, I write in my journal. I distinctly remember someone responding to a tweet of mine that I write every day with, “About what?” lol. What can someone possibly write about every day? Any and everything!
