Mix up your journal entries

Journal entries don’t need to be uniform. After all, your journal is a place for you to practice and experiment with your writing. Some days, sit down and just write whatever comes into your head. Julia Cameron describes this process best in The Artist’s Way. It’s a great way to empty yourself of the mundane and make space for creativity.

Another great book that will help you devise exercises for your journal writing is Writing Begins with a Breath: Embodying Your Authentic Voice. In this book, Larraine Herring gives great examples and suggested exercises to help you get the most out of your writing.

Tip of the day: Go wild in your journal.
