Join Our Life Journaling Group

LIfe journaling group

We’ve started a life journaling group and would love for you to join us!

What is “life journaling?” Isn’t all journaling about someone’s life by definition? Sure, you could say that. Our focus for the group leverages life in general, yes, but also the purposes your journaling for and the impact you want it to HAVE on your life. Is your journal writing a source of catharsis? A place to complain? A space to tell stories? Or is it bent toward creative writing?

Did you catch the writing theme here?


What it is and why you journal is personal, but there are some common things. Here are a few ways people we know use journaling:

  • In search of peace of mind – spirited writing of thoughts on anything that is on your mind, even the stuff you don’t know is on your mind.

  • To record daily activities – maybe you want to track your activities as a record for later, or summarize your thoughts about what is going on in your life.

  • To organize – the things you need to do, the goals you’re striving for, and how your daily activities align with what you envision.


We are on Facebook and Meetup, and will share information on Storied Gifts and Storied Gifts Shop as well.

We’ll talk writing—the kind of free-flow, let-it-leak spilling of words that ultimately gets you all the benefits of organizing your thoughts and creating content that serves the purpose of journaling you need.

We will explore journaling of other kinds, too, like the lists or bullet variety, the creative writing that inspires you to do the re-writing kind of writing, and even art journaling you craft and share.

In this group, people can discuss the tactile pleasure of writing, too—the paper they prefer, the journaling books they like, and favorite pens or pencils, etc. Creative journaling ideas are welcome.

Are you ready to join us?
