O'Shea shows why journal writing is fun, why it's effective, and why you should do it. She points to the journal as the tool that helps us learn and grow, uncover our motivations, and come face to face with our own realities. While journaling is essentially a personal, solitary experience, Samara shows how to get the most out of it. Each chapter includes one of the author's journal entries from throughout her life, which are alternately moving, edgy and hilarious, as well as charming anecdotes about the journal experience, all of them relayed in Samara's elegant prose. There are also insights into the act of journaling; suggestions on journal writing techniques (including blogging); exercises and tips on how to enrich the journal-writing experience, and the journal entry of a notorious diarist, including Tennessee Williams, Anais Nin, and '80s model Gia Carangi.
