Style/ Plot – First things first, this book is absolutely visually appealing. I stared at it for approximately 10 minutes before reading it. It was that beautiful. No I have not lost my mind. Yes, I have a day job.
Emily starts by defining what journaling is and how you can have a journal for a variety of reasons. She encourages the reader to think of other purposes for journaling and adopt it.
She shows you how to encourage creativity in yourself. Chapter 2 (on invention) was my favourite chapter; especially the part about writing a description of what your life will be like in 10 years.
Favourite Quote – “Slow down, pause, sit, and investigate. What do you notice that no one else does? Using your eyes is important, but don’t forget your nose and ears!”
