January Journaling

The start of a new year shouldn’t turn into a frenzy of things we’re going to stop or give up on in a few months. Statics show that some of us drop off after the first week of trying to keep a New Year’s Resolution. Other influencers are saying to try challenges instead of making long term goals.

I’ve tried different methods and it’s really about what fits best into each person’s life. I do find that building toward your goal or challenge instead of going full blast right away helps pace what you want to accomplish without burnout.

I’m starting out this year with blogging and journaling before I start working on a chapter a month of the book I want to finish. This way I can get into a rhythm after a break without pressure. This month doesn’t have to be themed. Journal is the only prompt and I’m not limiting myself to a subject.

Since I’m not in Paris, I’ll head to my favorite cafes for a treat and I’ll write about my surrounds. I’ll make up stories, people, and situations to practice. I might wander around my own city for a discovery. As long as my fingers are moving and pen gets use, I’ll be happy.

Join me in journaling month and start off this year by letting your mind wander the pages.

I’m an author in Minnesota who started out writing and illustrating Children’s books. I’ve published poetry and adult Romance Novels. I created my website and social media to reach out to other writers because the process can be lonely. I wanted to reach out to readers, writers, and those with a dream of finishing “that” novel. I share the advice of other writers and the tools I use to create my stories.
