Creative Journalling is both creative and therapeutic where writing and art are recorded regularly without editing. A journal will be a collection of thoughts, ideas and reactions. In writing things down – anything and everything – we create a narrative which can help us make sense of the world. Perhaps there is a very long history of this sort of exercise going all the way back to cave paintings or quilt making. At its simplest, a journal is a form of diary but not one that lists appointments and events but a more abstract record of ideas, flights of fancy and emotions.
