Five Things Friday: Benefits of Keeping a Journal

MichaelHyatt has two interesting podcasts on the 7 benefits of keeping a journal and change your story, change your life. If you are considering keeping a journal and curious about its benefits, this is a good place to start.

10 famous authors on the importance of keeping a journal (found via Susannah Conway)

Virginia Woolf on the creative benefits of keeping a diary. Brain Pickings shares excerpts from Virginia Woolf’s A Writer’s Diary. I’ve read this diary and it is inspiring to realize that even a brilliant writer like Woolf struggled with her writing.

If you are an avid journaler, or interesting in journaling, considering joining the #JournalChat on Thursdays from 5 p.m. EST. The chat is moderated by @JournalChat.

My guest post on my 2013 bucket list is up on Dana Sitar’s DIY Writing. If you are interesting in writing, but not sure where to start, Dana’s forthcoming e-book The Writer’s Bucket List will be a great resource. I’ll be posting a review next week.
