Review of Writing Down Your Soul

Are you thinking about using your Traveler’s Notebook for journaling?  I have always been a firm believer in journaling and recording moments of your life.  Writing down quotes, perceptions, observations, keeping paper ephemera of your life is an excellent way to connect to your true self, understand your personal truth and leave a lasting memorial for family if you so choose to do that.  One of the best books I have read on the subject is Writing Down Your Soul by Janet Connor.

If you have ever had a hard time knowing where to start, how to start, why you should even bother, this is the book….Janet helps readers connect with the ‘inner voice’ in a very easy way.  If you were on the fence about journaling, she will push you over to her side and sell you on the importance of doing it.  I have read a multitude of comments that call this book life transforming and I agree.  One of my favorite parts was helping the reader give a name to their journal, I’ve always journaled but never with a directed name and now I do.   You can find the book on Amazon.  Used copies sell for as little as $7.99.  I don’t know Janet, get no credit for this, I just think this is a worthwhile resource.  If you want to start journaling in your Traveler’s Notebook, here is an excellent way to start.

    Joy, happy to have discovered your blog. I also love Janet Conner’s book. I had the good fortune to author a book myself and a side benefit was discovering the healing power of telling my story so I no longer had to carry it. Kudos to you and your work. Writing heals and connects and frees. Keep up the good work. I plan to revisit. Mary
