Keeping a journal-or journaling-may be just the remedy you need to help you get rid of the pressure of writing an entire book.
When you focus on writing a book, you may feel pressure to write enough words to fill the entire book right now. When you focus on writing a journal entry, you simply want to get out a single idea. It won’t matter if that idea fills a few lines or a few pages. As long as it gets out of your head and onto paper.
If your publishing goal is starting to feel like a burden, then journaling may be just what you need to get back to being productive.
If this sounds like a good idea to you, I challenge you to start journaling today.
How to Begin Journaling:
- Grab a notebook.
- Dedicate it to writing about your book topic when inspiration hits.
- Keep the notebook with you at all times.
- Start writing.
Just promise that you’ll share your experiences with this approach in the comments below.
