Fantasy Journaling (Part 2 of 3)

JournalTalk_NathanOhrenHave I got a story for you.

In the previous episode, I introduced the concept of “fantasy journaling” — writing in a private diary, about events that never actually took place, as if they had.

In this episode, I’m joined by my friend, “Janet-from-another-Planet” as I share about the most interesting and extreme version of fantasy journaling I could find: A stay-at-home housewife and mom of four sons is writing letters to her high-school sweetheart, in order to keep in touch, and to help her cope with an oppressive marriage.  Only, she never sends the sends the letters; she burns them every week.

If you need a little inspiration for keeping a journal, this might be the most haunting and bizarre example. Yet it demonstrates just how journal-keeping can serve as a ladder to help elevate people from being stuck in their circumstances. (JournalTalk, Episode #77, July 6, 2016)
