Want to streamline your writing and write more? Use a writing journal – or use several.
Your writing journal can help you to write articles, books, and blogs.
The big benefit of your writing journals is that as you write in your journals, you get ideas for writing. Your journals prime the pump because they’re a hassle-free, low risk form of writing. Since no one else will read your journals, you can write whatever you like.
For example, let’s say you’re writing a novel.
Your novel journal guides you as you write
A novel is a long project, and over time, your novel will grow in ways you don’t expect. A novel writing journal is not only a repository for ideas as you write, it also keeps you on track, because you’ll often be tempted to go back and add material, or “correct” scenes. Backtracking kills inspiration, so keep your novel moving forward, and write revision notes and additional material in your novel journal.
Your novel writing journal is also the place to collect research. When you people-watch, you can write character descriptions into your journal. When you visit a location and take photos, you can add those photos to your journal.
Struggling with your writing? Start a writing journal, and write what you really want to write. If you’re procrastinating, or are blocked, your writing journal will get you writing again.
Write, draw, doodle – let yourself go in your journals. They’ll ignite your creativity.
