I haven't had much success with journalling but am thinking to try again. One thing I noticed when trying before is my writing cannot keep with with my thoughts and I end up mostly just scrawling lines and loops in the general length of a word with no legibility or even real letter shapes. I wonder if this is as effective and if the act of scratching at the paper is therapeautic at all if I am not putting down recognizable words and sentences. Is the pen just a conduit to DO SOMETHING as the thoughts come out? Or does the word need to be written for recognition and some processing?
