Charlene Geiss's collage style of journaling is not only fun to do but draws from a variety of media. Newsweek has reported on the therapeutic benefits of confessional writing, and writing and art together are able to pull out a deeper range of complexity and personal expression from the journal keeper than words alone. Geiss and veteran writer Claudia Jessup created this set of 33 cards, each corresponding to a question that prompts the journaler's imagination. The Book of Exploration elaborates upon each card and suggests writing and drawing techniques to plumb the depths of the journaler's experience toward rich self-exploration. Black-and-white illustrations throughout add to this tool for creative journal keeping.

    In their journaling manifesto Inner Outings, Jessup and Geiss have established a technique equally suited to the seasoned journal writer and novice alike. The cards are beautifully designed and inspirational, the accompanying book witty and thought provoking. Together they are an excellent tool for breaking through writer's block, and the walls of the subconscious. Whether you¿re cracking open a hand-crafted journal or switching on the computer screen, Inner Outings helps conquer the fear of the blank page and unleash the writer within us all.

    A JUMP START TO JOURNALING

    The way things have been going in the world for the past couple of years, more and more people have taken up keeping a journal to keep track of their feelings and help keep their heads on straight. Charlene Geiss (who teaches journaling) and Claudia Jessup (a bestselling novelist) have provided a marvelous entry into the world of journaling with this inspired combination of a book and deck of cards. The cards are beautifully designed to jump start a diary entry, and the book is written with clarity and ease to explain the process. It all fits into a neat little box that makes it a perfect gift. Bravo!

    Inner Outings: The Diarist's Deck of 33 Cards amd Book of Exploration

    I have always kept a journal, but after reading this book and doing free writes, I am beginning to realize how much a journal can really mean! Jessup and Geiss ask such pertinent, thoughtful questions and help to open up unexplored parts of my memory and being. It is so well written--very clear and nurturing for beginners, yet challenging and fresh for avid writters. The cards add beautiful and poetic visualization. Inner Outings is a staple for anyone who wants to be creative.
