When I was a kid and feeling sad and alone, I journaled to an imaginary friend and it made me feel better.
When I was a teenager and dealing with criticism from my parents and nastiness at school, I journaled and it made me feel better.
When I was a young adult facing fear and uncertainty, I journaled about a hopeful future and it made me feel better.
Now, as a grown woman, I journal to learn more about myself and my stories, and it always, always, always makes me feel better.
What I’ve discovered from journaling over the last 40 years is the process of taking what’s in your mind, heart, and soul and putting it on the page is healing. Creating something with your hands that brings your inner world into the physical world is a form of magic.
Since journaling has both saved me and served me, I’ve created an online journaling club to share journaling techniques–both written and visual–with people all over the world.
My journaling club is hosted on Patreon, a membership platform that enables creators and patrons to support and connect with each other. Patrons pledge an amount of money every month and in return, they receive exclusive content, access, updates, and the joy of knowing they’re fueling work they value and care about.
I’m offering tier levels starting at $5 per month that come with various benefits including touchstone readings, behind-the-scenes peeks into my creative process, and exclusive videos.
One key benefit I’m offering are writing prompts. Over the years, many of you who’ve taken my Fear & Writing workshop have asked me how to find more writing prompts and I never had a good answer for you…until now. I’m happy to let you know that every tier level includes 3 writing prompts per week. Yep, that’s 12 to 15 writing prompts every month!
Sound good to you?
ps. SPECIAL OFFER: Pledge at the Forest tier level ($10+) by September 9, 2020 (9pm PDT) and you’ll receive a Journaling Care Package in the mail! ?
February 2021 Update: My journaling club is now closed.
