Because I’m researching and writing about journal writing, I follow a Twitter search for “journal writing” to see what Twitter users are saying about the subject.
The following is a collection of representative tweets that express reasons for keeping a journal—particularly for how journal writing is a secure, private place to reflect and express one’s emotions.
If you do a search yourself, you’ll be pleased to see how many Twitter users are devoted journals keepers.
