“The habit of writing thus for my own eye only is good practice. It loosens the ligaments.”
– Virginia Woolf
Maria Popova at Brainpickings.org has put together a great selection of Virginia Woolf’s thoughts on the creative benefits of keeping a journal. Woolf herself did not begin keeping a journal until 1915 at age 33, but left behind 26 volumes when she died in 1941. Like the notebooks you carry with you during our workshops, Woolf’s diaries provided her a place for collecting ideas, research, and creative processes.
