If you're having trouble writing in your journal, the problem may be that you don't have a clear picture of your audience. It is much easier to write with an audience in mind. The trouble is that we don't want an audience for our journals. We want this to be the one place we can let it all out. So, how to get around it? Name your journal and write to it as if you're writing a letter. Or, do as I do and write to your inner voice.
Tip of the day... To make writing in your journal easier, write to a fictitious audience as if you were writing a letter or talking on the phone.
