It's the new year and everyone is full of resolutions as to what they aspire to do in the upcoming year. If you want to improve your writing, I can't think of any better exercise than keeping a journal. Journals are great places to just let your ideas spout and take root.
You can use a journal to:
- Reflect on events
- Organize your thoughts today
- Record your thoughts and dreams for the future
Yes, you could use a blog for this but sometimes your words are ready to be public or really shouldn't see the light of day. (I'm all for sharing the process but you usually have to go through plenty of not so wonderful thoughts to get to the good stuff.)
The trick they say is consistency. But wouldn't it be better to be consistent once a week than consistent for 30 days and then quit. So start small, take five minutes a day or even a week and commit to writing.
