Stirring creativity through journaling

Creativity promotes innovation. Without it, a person cannot produce fresh, out-of-the-box solutions to every day problems. It is something every individual holds, but not every one practices. Here’s why anyone can boost their creativity through journaling.

Writing (without the backspace) helps people think freely 

Writing without expectations helps people become more creative. While writing with a backspace bar can be quite strenuous, especially for experienced writers, writing freely encourages the creative process without barring one’s thoughts. 

Journaling is a good way to practice one’s voice 

When people strive to write perfectly (or well), they fail to translate their real ideas on their page, which requires their trust to their own voice. While it’s perfectly okay to create great material, the personal voice can only be developed if it is unedited. The voice comes out without edits, and the journal exists to show the writer’s messiness. That being said, the journal is a great place to discover one’s voice. 

Writing on a journal is a record what one wants, thinks, and who they want to become 

While photographs are a record of how people changed physically over time, journals document how much one’s personality unfolds day by day. It is a record of what has been, what is, and what will be.
