Where do you start?
Start with whatever comes.
Let the words flow.
Allow what is within to surface.
When the fear of writing is upon you, write anyway.
Move beyond the superficial.
In order for the writing to be cathartic and healing, you need to be honest—completely honest. You need to move past a superficial retelling of events. Ask yourself more difficult questions such as,
"Why am I feeling this now?"
"What am I feeling right now ? "
Create a special, sacred writing place; quiet zone.
When writing about an event or a feeling also examine the flip side or the positive outcome of the situation.
Re-read what you have written.
Writing is a great way to learn about who you are and where you have been.
Applaud yourself for telling the truth and congratulate yourself for moving on.
