Writing as Self Care – WN 003

Help support this podcast! >>

You guys, I am super stoked about this week’s podcast topic. BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT:
Writing as self care.
The idea of using writing as a way to attain and maintain both physical and mental health isn’t new.

From amateur journaling to more official psychoanalysis efforts, writing is often used for external processing, personal introspection, and the sheer (and necessary) act of creation.

Today’s podcast explores:
1. Writing as healing.
2. Writing as maintenance.
3. Writing as social healing.
My question to you is: how do we make the act of writing — and its inherent benefits — part of our daily routine?

Book of the week!
This week’s book is the sparse and starkly beautiful The Cold Dish, the first of the Walt Longmire mystery series by Craig Johnson. Ever wonder what would happen if Cormac McCarthy were to write a mystery novel set in rural Wyoming?

Wonder no more.
