I've been keeping a journal and i find it very helpful. I don't write every day, just when i have something on my mind that i feel the need to. I find it easier to write when i don't set a schedule for it, it's just there if i need it.
I'd love to be a better writer and found this blog with weekly writing tips. So this will go into my balance blog as part of a goal i have for myself.
To visit the blog where I found this go to
