If you walk into my home office on any given day you’re bound to see brightly colored Post-It notes tacked to the door of the room’s closet. In early 2019 this became my way of creating an outline for my articles.
Sure, I could just jot down an outline in a notebook or type up one in a Google or Word document — and for years that’s what I did. But one day I was really struggling to organize my thoughts for a story and I knew my traditional method of outlining wasn’t going to cut it.
Before I became a full-time freelance writer, I juggled being a high school English teacher with regularly writing stories for half a dozen different publications.
Now that I freelance full time, my schedule can be just as busy as I’m doing freelance journalism for publications, freelance content writing for businesses and non-profits and working to grow the See Jane Write brand and community.
Brace yourself. I’m about to blog about journaling – again. A few months ago on Instagram, I stumbled upon the Same Page Journal, a couples journal designed by husband and wife team Alex and Caitlin Godwin to help couples practice healthy and intentional communication.
