I use journaling as a way of working through any writing problems that I am having, as though I am talking it through with a friend, and very often the solution that has eluded me for days will suddenly become clear. I also use it to write out any personal issues I am having and find it the perfect place to vent any frustrations instead of taking it out on those around me.
I have found that when I use my journal to get out all the mental clutter and chatter going on inside my head, it leaves more room in there for the creativity to flow, almost like clearing a blocked drain.
Do you keep a journal? If so, do you find it helps with your writing? Let me know in the comments below, I'd love to hear from you.
I'm going to be away on holiday until 15th April, but I have scheduled all the posts for while I'm away. I will try and log in once a day to check everything is running smoothly and reply to as many comments as I can. If you leave a comment I will visit your blog when I return and reciprocate. Happy A to Z'ing.
