Writing Journal

My CRAZY Life: PRAYER JOURNALS ARE A GOOD WAY TO BOND WITH YOUR KIDSHello Cherries and Chestnuts, I wonder what opportunities you have had to write.

I thought I would share some of the things I have been doing at home. I have been writing shopping lists, letters and birthday cards to my friends and family. I have also been keeping a journal to write down different ideas and poems.


A writer’s notebook is a place where you can write all kinds of things: ideas, questions, thoughts, poems, songs and stories.

Why write in a journal?

  1. The more you write about what you see and hear, the more observant you’ll become.
  2. The more you write, the more your writing will improve overall.
  3. The act of writing down an idea often stimulates more ideas!

Journal writing tips

There is no right or wrong way to keep a writer’s notebook. Here are some suggestions:

  • Pick a notebook that you like: a spiral notebook, a binder, a blank book. It doesn’t have to be fancy. In fact, sometimes if it’s too fancy, you might be afraid to write in it.
  • Write whatever pops into your head that you find interesting: a dream, a conversation, a description of something you see, an idea for a poem, a story, a song, character names, etc.
  • Dictate: if you find it hard to get your thoughts or ideas down, ask someone else to write for you. Make sure they use your words.
  • Take your writer’s notebook with you EVERYWHERE.
  • Date your entries: you might want to know when you came up with an idea later.
