Book Review: Journaling for Discovery and Delight

A blogging friend Dawn Paoletta from Enthusiastically, Dawn has written a book on journaling. She describes her book as a “self-paced writing journey” that “uses a variety of prompts to explore and discover the possibilities available with journaling to impact all areas of life.”(1.)

Dawn gives her readers some valuable tips for their journaling activity.
·         Journal Keeping,
·         Writer’s Block,
·         Perfectionism.

She also includes tips on ways to get the most out of the reader’s journaling.
·         Consider the Season of Life,
·         Carry a journal with you,
·         Keep it Simple,
·         Keep it Private, (but be with a mind to sharing, when the time is right)
·         Give ourselves permission to write about what we want.

She has interspersed writing challenges throughout this guide. These are forms for the reader to use to “reflect on and write about” the reader’s “experience with this book.” (2)

Dawn is very dedicated to her craft. She encourages those with whom she has contact to keep writing, planning, and journaling. 

I believe this book will help any journal writer to gain from the tips and pointers Dawn shares. I wish her well in this endeavor.

I purchased this book myself. I chose to review it. I chose to give an unbiased review.

2.)        From page 17 of the book.           

I will be on a short break and a trip with Hubby. I will return here Monday, June 11, 2018.
