Since 2020 and the start of KT I have had to rack my brain and try remember all the things that happened when I was on dialysis. While I have been able to write about the majority of things that happened. There were many of the blogs that I have shared that I have really had work hard at remembering what happened or asking some of those that were there if they remembered.
Trying to write a story off of memory has not been a pleasant experience and there was one way I could have avoided that and been able to make my writing life much easier. This advice that I am about to share with you is not new but it is a good reminder about what we all can do to make writing our stories easier on us.
It is simply carry a journal and write down your experiences while they are fresh in your mind. The reason is you have a much clearer vision and also when you sit down to write you don’t have to put your hand on your head trying to remember every little detail of what happened.
You don’t have to write every day in fact the way that I journal is if a thought hits me or there is something new I experience I write a few sentences and then I am done. A journal is more than for writing experiences on you can jot down a idea or a quote you heard.
A journal is a tool that of used correctly it can make your journey as a writer much easier. But Ant a journal is so expensive and I can’t afford that. Use your phone or a 2 dollar note book and write journal on it. It does not have to be fancy it just has to be able to hold your thoughts, ideas and your story in it. If you use a journal you are definitely one step closer to obtaining that dream that has been given to you.
