Mari McCarthy, who has written many journaling books, including Who Are You? How to Use Journaling to Know and Grow Your Life, and Help for the Holidays: 7 Days of Journaling Ho! Ho! Ho! has a new book out that chronicles the stories others have to offer about their journaling experiences. Called Dark Chocolate and the Journaler’s Soul: 17 Personal Journaling Stories for Healing and Growth, this collection touches on struggles and successes, and how journalers exlpore many issues in their lives by writing down what they want to say. Each personal story is followed up with a question and answer format about frequency of journaling, inspiring quotes, tricks for overcoming writer’s block and how journaling has positively affected their lives.
This is rich stuff, just like you’d expect a tasty bite of dark chocolate to be.
