Writing comes easily for some… journaling however, can be a challenge for many. Even as an accomplished writer, Author Rosemary Augustine struggled with journaling for a long time - some days not knowing what to write. Recently, Rosemary released 365 Days of Creative Writing, offering journal prompts and creative ideas for everyday of the year. Rosemary wrote the book for those of us who want to journal daily but find it hard in the chaos of life to carve out 15 minutes. However, in the bigger scheme of things it is important to not only find the time, but to make the time - everyday. As Rosemary points out in the introduction of the book, it is vitally important to your mental well being, physical health and spiritual survival to find the time to write. The prompts can also be used for creative writing ideas, helping one write a memoir, breakthrough writer’s block and for writers to hone their writing skills. The book is designed to write, draw and color on the pages making it a journal in itself. Rosemary started writing poetry and short stories as a teenager and began journaling around age 30. For the next three decades, her daily writings would flow like water from an open facet. Then there would be skipped days, weeks even months. When something was bothering her, she’d pick up her journal and write about it. “I was very much like many other women,” says Rosemary, “who found the daily challenge of journaling hard to stick with and often with blank stares at an empty page not knowing what to write.” Rosemary is not exactly sure when, but she started offering journal prompts to her clients in the 1990s who were struggling with career transition. As their Career Coach, she found herself listening to many tales of woe and would suggest “why don’t you journal on that” with the response being “I wouldn’t know what to write.” When she would suggest a particular word or phrase, a light bulb would go off with their response of “what a great idea.” Those suggestions eventually turned into an idea for a book and now many years later the book titled: 365 Days of Creative Writing.
