Passion for life, for work, for one’s love. A life with passion bursts forth each morning blooming with colors and alive with fragrances and joy. Life without passion is uninspiring and mundane.” RB

JOURNAL WRITING For a writer, writing in a journal is like warm-up routine for an athlete. It enhances one’s performance and strengths one’s talents. Journals inspire ideas, create a personal style and alleviate stress. Journals are also great vehicles to record personal histories, work through problems, and celebrate one’s life. How to use a journal to enhance your writing and how journals add to life’s moments will be part of the workshop.
