Here’s why journaling every day helps your writing.
1. It’s Low-Pressure. You Can Sneak Up on Scary Projects.
Your journal lets you try out ideas. All writers get many more ideas than for projects than we could ever write, even if we lived two lifetimes. We also get ideas which scare us.
Maybe you got an idea for a huge fantasy novel after you read A Game of Thrones. Ooooh… scary. Write a fantasy novel? If you dismiss the idea, you’re doing your subconscious mind a disservice. Dismiss your creativity regularly, and you’ll stop getting ideas.
Do you journal? Some writers do, some don't.
