Fearless ReviewsThis is hard for a published writer to admit, but I've always put off personal journaling by saying "later." I have labored under the mistaken impression all these years that my writing time could be better spent using words to make a living or make an impression on others, and not for my own personal growth.
But my outlook on personal journaling has turned completely around after reading Linda C. Senn's enjoyable The Many Faces of Journaling. The author uses illustrations from a variety of personal and historical journals (including her own) to illustrate the numerous benefits and joys of journaling. There are untold gains to be received from the cathartic work of a therapeutic journal. Our imagination can be strengthened through word play and poetry in a creativity journal. Wonderful insights into our subconscious processes can be found by the keeping of a dream journal. A garden journal can help us sense the wonders and patterns in nature. Future generations can come to a deeper understanding of our daily existence and experiences from our chronological journaling and our travel journals.
Never has the sense of what I feel at this particular moment in history seemed so important and so easy to share, all thanks to the power of personal journaling. A true gem of a writer's guide, this book can help unlock the marvels that lie within each of us.
