Daily journalling is one of the most essential skills you can have if you’re hoping to write a memoir. Why? Well one reason is that memoir is, by definition, a “collection of memories” – and by processing our thoughts and feelings and experiences on the page each day, we don’t just create a written record of a slice of our lives, we become more nuanced observers, we become better writers, and we ALSO gain a host of INCREDIBLE health and wellbeing benefits that come with daily writing!
Writing in a journal is a deeply therapeutic process. And writing about your experiences – even during a traumatic or sad or anxious time – helps you to re-frame and literally re-write your own narrative, as well as become more mindful. What could be more powerful than that? You’re also creating a pool of material you can then draw upon when it comes time to sit down and start your book-length memoir.
