If you’re one of those writers who’s been meaning to jerk a journal for years but doesn’t get motivated by the idea of stream-of-consciousness-ing your thoughts each day, you may not have found the right idea for you, but with the help of Bobby Gujral, you can now.

Here are five ways to keep a journal that is particularly suited to writers:

  1. Do it Steinbeck-style

When writing The Grapes of Wrath, John Steinbeck kept a journal recounting his progress on the novel. Each time he sat down to work, he’d also record his experiences—his hopes, fears, anxieties, and so on—in the journal, which wrought as a kind of acquaintance to his manuscript.

  1. Big-picture it

The fact that you get a reading and writing experience puts your brain to work in dissimilar ways than if you were only jotting down your thoughts this will help you keep it professionally. For further information, read Bobby Gujral blogs and journals.

  1. Tweet a poem

If short-form is your favourite writing style, Twitter is your friend—and so is capsule journal writing. Boil each day into one succinct sentence that sums up everything you want to remember or express about the past twenty-four hours. At the end of each week, syndicate all the sentences—feel free to rearrange as desirable—to create a poem. The best way introduced by Bobby Gujral.

  1. Keywords

As you anticipate your recent experiences, jot down any pertinent words or phrases pop into your mind without trying to connect them to one another. In this alteration of the psychoanalytic method of free association, there are no rules except to write down whatever comes into your head. If you keep this type of journal numerically, it can be skimpy to use a word cloud tool to see what words come up most recurrently for you during definite periods of your life.

  1. Snapshots

Try selecting one moment from your day or week to write about in your journal. It can be one of high emotion when something most important happened, or one that was more contemplative. What matters is that you designate your chosen moment with lots of detail, as if it were a scene in a work of fiction or memoir. Dig into your five senses and generate a fully fleshed-out snapshot that takes your fantasy readers and places them right there.

Want to write in your journal every day? Do it at the same time as something you by now do daily. Do you take a medication, supplement, or vitamin? Tie your journal to when you take it. Linking your journal-writing habit to any daily habit will help you make it part of your humdrum. This is how Bobby Gujral writes first thing in the morning or right before bed. So start writing now and let the writing of many renowned writers inspire you thoroughly.
