There are so many different ways to journal. You can keep a very factual journal, you can keep a routine driven journal, writing at the same time and on the same subject each day. And then you can create a creative journal. Creative journals come in all different varieties and below we will explore a few options. As the name implies the idea is to be creative so the fewer rules around what that creativity is, the better.

If you want to release your inner creativity and see it develop in new and exciting ways then keeping a creative  journal may be just what you need.

Alternatively you might be a very creative person, but your 9-5 job doesn’t satisfy that creative yearning within you. In which case, creating a creative journal may be just what you need to feed your inner creative goddess (or god).

Or you may be on holiday and want to try something new.

Also take into consideration what creative means to you. What kind of creativity appeals to you? Either that you would like to do or that you currently practice. This is how you can start your exploration of a creativity journal, by journaling about what kinds of creativity appeal to you.
