Have You Written Your Journal Pages Today?
I stretch my writing muscles every day by writing in my journal. The journal is personal, meaning that I don't share what I write there with anyone on a routine basis. My journal allows me to limber up and get prepared for the more organized writing I will do that day.
Almost anything might show up in my journal. Overheard bits of conversation show up there. Ideas for articles, books and stories find their way there. My journal contains a number of rants that I hope never see the light of day anywhere else. I track my progress on my writing goals in the journal, noting religiously how many words I wrote yesterday. (The words written in the journal don't count toward my daily total.)
If you haven't written your journal pages today, get to it.
My first love was reading, and my second love was writing. Deciding how to string words together fascinates me.
My interests and pursuits are wide ranging. I'm a self-employed educational entrepreneur and book packager. During my career I have worked as a consultant, professor, business owner, author and ghostwriter.
