I tried to journal a couple of times but it didn’t work, because I thought I had to put a date at the top of every entry. That was more stressful than productive. However, after my seperation with my second husband, I started journaling again. This time, I made sections and started using it not only to write down my thoghts, but also as a dumping ground for scenes that I planned to take out of my works in progress. Less stress and I can write in it whenever I want and not feel like I have to write in it when there’s nothing to add.
