Writer's Block Cure!

"I had been journaling off and on over the years, but until I read Mari's take on its benefits, and her enthusiasm, I didn't commit to delving into the depths of 'Writing for the Health of It!' Overcoming resistance to expressing feelings on paper was a big step for me. Mari's website helped me to stop thinking about writing, but to go ahead and 'just do it'!"
