The best journaling method is called a free-write. For 10 minutes, write. Don´t lift the pen off the paper. Don´t correct mistakes. Don´t worry about punctuation or spelling. If you feel you have nothing to say, write ´I have nothing to say´. You will be amazed at how much you actually can find to write about! If you don´t want to look at a clock, determine a minimum number of pages to fill instead. If you use prompts to get you started writing, just write whatever comes to you once you read the prompt. First thoughts are important.
