• Write twenty minutes a day over four days. Do this periodically. This way you won’t feel overwhelmed.

  • Write in a private, safe, comfortable environment.

  • Don’t use writing as a substitute for taking action or as a substitute for therapy or medical care.

  • Write about issues you’re currently living with, something you’re thinking or dreaming about constantly, or a trauma that you’ve never quite resolved.

  • If you feel overwhelmed, stop and take care of yourself.

I use my writing as a way of fixing things, of making them better, of healing myself. To see where I am, where I’ve been and where I’m going.Louise DeSalvo
