Self Affirmation Writings

Self-Affirmation writing is a self-esteem exercise that prompts the writer to journal about what they believe in, what makes them happy, etc. Fox News featured a segment on a study that was conducted in Michigan for 7th graders using this technique. They shared with their viewers that many students saw a positive increase in grade percentage during the time of this study. When people think affirming thoughts....they have a better outlook on life. When these thoughts are in print they can fleet away when the next negative occurrence happens. Journaling is one of the healthiest exercises that a person can do. It allows them to reflect, to plan, to meditate and ultimately to be successful. Successful is what you can be when you allow yourself to go after what you want. Do you want to be published? The best way to make that happen is to gain the skills that you need to make being a author a reality. My next event is A Spring Creative Writing Retreat. It will be in Northville, MI at the Hampton Inn and will include a overnight stay at the hotel, various workshops on writing, marketing your book, etc. This is a MUST for anyone who is in the writing industry, would like to see themselves published one day, and/or who enjoys writing and needs the time to do it. I hope to see you there! The cost is $150/person and you can sign up using the paypal method on this page.

Read something great!

Once a month I spend at least an hour reviewing my old journal entries. It keeps me motivated and on track. I highly reccomend it!
