Using Writing as Therapy

Sometimes, us writers can get into a bit of a slump. I hate to admit it (although I’m sure it’s abundantly clear from my lack of posts lately), but I’ve been in a considerable slump for quite some time now. As frustrating as it can be to not feel inspired or to not be able to produce work that you feel proud of for long stretches of time, that doesn’t mean writing shouldn’t still be a part of your life. To me, writing is a symbiotic relationship- sure, we “help it” by bringing it to life, but it can also help us so much, especially in times like these. Continue reading “Using Writing as Therapy”

While this is an understandable, albeit slightly saddening and frustrating part of being a writer, I’m here to tell you why you shouldn’t give up on these works.

Why You Should Write A Thought A Day

Happy belated New Year’s! I know I’ve been gone awhile (junior year’s a killer), but I’m hoping 2018 will give me more willpower and inspiration so I can get back to posting weekly! To start off today’s post, I’d like to advocate for something I’ve started doing this year that’s brought me so much fulfillment and inspiration already. It may sound simple, but I’ve compiled a little “2018 journal” in which I write one thought daily. It doesn’t sound like much, but trust me when I say this is definitely one resolution that I’ll be keeping up- and here’s why you should give it a try too.

Why I Write

Writing has always been a part of my life. From the moment I was born, I swear it felt like I had a pen in my hand. Truthfully speaking, though, that’s not what really happened. I’ve spoken about writing a lot on this blog, but I haven’t said much about myself. As the owner of a blog dedicated to writing, it seems only fair that I share with you all what motivated me to start what is now my lifelong passion.

A Writer’s Guide To Art Museums

Writing isn’t always easy. Sometimes, you can get stuck in a serious writing slump. Trust me, I’ve been there. It’s okay to get stuck every once in awhile, so long as you know how to get yourself out with a good dose of inspiration. One of my favorite places to get inspired is art museums.

Why I Love Travel Journaling

If you’ve been on my blog before, you probably know that I’m a huge advocate for journaling. It’s a great practice to get in the habit of, especially if you’re a writer. It helps boost your creativity, organize your thoughts, and clear your head of all of the metaphorical “garbage” cluttering your thoughts (among other things.)

When traveling, it can be hard to keep up certain aspects of your daily routine that you maintain at home. Travel journals offer the perfect way to maintain the daily habit of journaling while presenting an alternate type of journal more suited for travel. Continue reading “Why I Love Travel Journaling”
