@projectkathryn But what about the job do you hate; get more specific. Helps understand what works for you and what doesn't. #chicklitchat

Our #ChickLitChat time is almost up- any more questions for @DawnHerring about journaling?

I wanted to recommend a book edited by Diana Raab: Writer's and Their Notebooks. Excellent read!#chicklitchat

@DawnHerring and there is only so many times you can write "I hate my job" before you quit and find something better! #chicklitchat

I love journaling at night; helps me remember what to do the next day; helps with sleep as well. It's Relaxing! #chicklitchat

@projectkathryn I sometimes write things down before bed, to just get them out of my head.#ChickLitChat

It's really just jotting down your point of view on any subject, whether writing or life related. #chicklitchat
projectkathryn6:49pm via Web
I used to write a whiny, negative journal then quit but now I think it helped get that stuff out of my head#chicklitchat

@DawnMariaAZ Journaling can be in many forms. It's a matter of what works for you and what your purpose is. #chicklitchat

What I'm hearing here tonight is that most of us are doing some form of journaling already. Now let's make it a regular habit! #ChickLitChat
jnbeverett6:45pm via TweetChat
Then there's that moment where you're at a party itching to jot down some great bit of dialogue without being obvious. #chicklitchat
DawnHerring6:45pm via TweetChat
The thing I love about journaling is making profound and even life-changing discoveries. I love it when that happens. #chicklitchat

@DawnMariaAZ I find my inspiration comes from my life; I always have something to write about. ;)#chicklitchat

@DawnMariaAZ So do I, Dawn. You don't have to censor yourself; it's just you and the page.#chicklitchat

@DawnHerring And one can fight the urge to edit while typing. I don't edit what I write in freehand.#chicklitchat

RT @jnbeverett: A great way to think about it - capturing the truth of emotion at the time vs. memory/revised history. #chicklitchat

@DawnMariaAZ Online can work for folks who would rather journal that way or not at all. #chicklitchat

@CydM @DawnHerring How much time do you spend on journaling? #ChickLitChat Do you warm up with it ala Morning Pages?
DawnHerring6:15pm via TweetChat
@DawnMariaAZ I prefer pen to paper, Dawn. It's what I always use. It flows. Plus I alternate hands!#chicklitchat

@DawnHerring Do you think a pen/paper journal is best or is online okay? #ChickLitChat

@DawnMariaAZ I would, Dawn. Doing an exercise is journaling. It's insightful and eye opening.#chicklitchat

I have one too and never thought about that! @DawnMariaAZ #chicklitchat

@DawnHerring It's been instrumental in times of difficulty, but rereading it is like rehashing old news. I'd love to go deeper #chicklitchat

When you explore emotions in your own experience, it can give more insight into a character's experience.#chicklitchat

RT @CydM: @DawnMariaAZ My own journaling has changed dramatically with evernote. All are done in that program with tags #ChickLitChat

My personal journal encompasses all areas of my life: my family, my work, my play, my spiritual connection, and my writing. #chicklitchat

I have a writing exercise notebook, but I've never thought of it as a journal. I wonder if I should rethink that. #ChickLitChat
DawnHerring6:09pm via TweetChat
I think a fiction journal can be multi-dimensional. Character studies, practicing dialogue, describing surroundings, etc. #chicklitchat
DawnMariaAZ6:08pm via TweetDeck
How many #ChickLitChat writers use journaling either personally or for their writing?
DawnHerring6:08pm via TweetChat
@DawnMariaAZ I have several journals: personal, dream, spiritual, and art. #chicklitchat

I've found journaling to be emotionally productive, but would like to move towards creative and exploratory.#chicklitchat

Journaling really opens up that pathways of intuition, ideas, creativity. Which can really help writers!#chicklitchat
DawnMariaAZ6:07pm via TweetDeck
@DawnHerring Do have separate journals for each area of your life? I'm wondering what a fiction journal would look like. #ChickLitChat
