How To Use Writing Therapy

Have a question? Agree, disagree, with me? Leave me your opinion. Use writing as therapy to understand an experience, or your behavior during a specific incident. It frees you from unnecessary anxiety, plaguing thoughts and allows you to live a better quality of life. Address any experience with patience. •Ready to face it? •Write down all details. •Take your time. •Stop. •Write more tomorrow. •Slowly expose the facts. •Put it aside. Behavior changes is part of a process. •Let a few days pass. •Read-over your account. •Leave anything out? •A complete picture helps more. •Writing therapy takes some longer. •Stick to a comfortable time-frame. •There's no one to compete with. Anxiety about what could happen disappears. •Express reasons for fear. •Take a deep breath. •Explore uneasiness. •What caused it? •Preventable next time? •Yes. •Change begins. Thoughts that nag are put in perspective during writing therapy. •Write down nagging thoughts. •Why are they on your mind? •Select one thought at a time. •Concern yourself with what you can control. •Find a solution. •Jot down various solutions. •Pick one. Better quality of life is lived through writing therapy. •Doubt is removed. •Fear goes away. •Living starts. •New energy is discovered. •Plan making pops-up. •Laughter. •A new you. Final Word People who wrote regularly visited the doctor less according to Psychologist James W. Pennebaker. Source:

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.

She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.

She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.

Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
