How keeping a journal will help you find your muse
"JOURNAL WRITING IS A VOYAGE TO THE INTERIOR"
Keeping a journal allows you to be your own muse and to unleash the creativity that may be bubbling up under the surface. Keeping a journal and writing in it on a regular basis can help you get all of your thoughts, ideas and opinions of the world out, and can be a great source for creative inspiration down the road.
Journals are not just for Ninth Grade English classes or Eighteenth Century Statesmen, they can be powerful creative devices that allow a person to keep track of their daily or weekly thoughts so that they might go back to them later in order to gain creative inspiration from them. While the internet along with all of its fun things to do such as blogging, myspacing, twittering, and facebooking, can help you keep track of all your wayward thoughts and allow you to share them with your plethora of digitally connected friends, using it as a creative thinking interface is still not the same as keeping a personal journal.
A journal is great way for you to keep track of all your thoughts, fears, ideas, opinions and feelings about your life without the need to share them with the rest of the world. It allows you to put down your ideas in their rawest form so that you can draw from them later and gain insight. Forcing yourself to write in a journal on a regular basis will help you summon the forces of creativity and give you something to dwell upon in when you are looking for inspirational kick start.
