Comments about writing

I want to add in the different comments placed about writing.  Sometimes people don’t read the comments and I felt they add to this post by giving more resources and other perspectives.

Patricia J Grace wrote her Grace to Survive post at

Free writing: How to fall into the abyss in three sentences or less.
I can reread my free writing journal years later and nothing has changed. I always spiral into the darkest corners and holes, and it always ends the same horrible way.
Blessedly, I learned about blogs where I couldn’t/wouldn’t share my darkest thoughts. Blogs, for me, required planning and structure. The interesting part is that I don’t write in my deep, dark journal hardly ever anymore. I’d rather spend time writing something more constructive.


Pennebaker’s Expressive Writing is good. Four 20 minute sessions a day apart. And instruction to stop as soon as you feel uncomfortable.

I went in search of Pennebaker’s Expressive Writing.  I found what I believe is from the original person plus I’m adding a few other links that I thought were interesting.

Expressive Writing: Words that Heal by James Pennebaker

I haven’t read this book.  I plan to put it on my ‘to be read list.’

 What’s on your mind and in your heart?
