A Book That Made me Pick Up a Pen (and Journal): A Review by Anne Janzer

    Today we have another review of Journaling Power by Anne Janzer on her website AnneJanzer.com. Not only does Anne provide a great review, but she also has some valuable information she shares. You don't want to miss it.

    Here is an excerpt from her review:

    Socrates said that the unexamined life is not worth living. But how does one go about examining a life while still immersed in it?

    Even with the slowdown of a pandemic, our minds never seem to dial back. The constant chatter of the universe is always clamoring for our attention.

    (Dang, I just got another Clubhouse notification. Am I missing out? Should I be there?)

    The secret, for many of us, lies in a combination of writing and practice—specifically, a journaling practice. Even if you’ve tried and abandoned journaling before, I suggest you pick up Mari L. McCarthy’s book Journaling Power.

    It’s a guide to building a journaling practice into your own life. The book is both simple and powerful.

    In the “nonfiction writing” category, this book combines how-to, exposition (why-to), and story.

    How and why to keep a journal

    At its heart, it’s a how-to book. Each chapter shares prompts to get started on (or restart), your own journaling practice.

    But for most of us, the problem isn’t knowing what to do—it’s doing it.
