I've rediscovered the joys of Journaling. Journals are awesome! They can be anything from a word document in a secret file to a bound book with a colorful cover. I have tons of them scattered in my office. I've been filling mine lately with thoughts I don't want to share publicly, story ideas, observations and more. Journals can be therapeutic or they can set you up for organization. I even have a journal for my novel that includes inspirations and outlines. I encourage you to discover journaling. If writing every day is too overwhelming, start small. Write once a week and then increase as you see fit. For me, I journal when the mood strikes. It could be every day or every few months. And the most important thing to remember: DO NOT SHARE ANYTHING YOU DON'T WANT TO SHARE. Journals are a personal thing and you shouldn't feel like you need to share them unless you want to.
I hope you all are enjoying "The Charm or the Strikeout" as much as I am enjoying the process of creating it. Installment Four should be arriving very soon.
