“But I tried that!” my students say with a guilty shrug. “I just can’t keep it going every day.” Once again, Dr. Cerebrum is imposing rules, insisting that to write in a journal, it must be this, it must be that, and above all, it must be every day.
Strip every “should” from your journal and think of it as a playground. Visit whenever. Wear your cutoffs with the shredded back pocket. Climb, swing, play tag, or sit on a picnic table and do nothing.
