Journal Writing and Inner Dialog
Publication date: 2010
Original publication: Website, 1998
Format: eBook for Kindle
2nd Edition (2013) available from Amazon Kindle Store.
This publication was originally an online workshop in journal writing as a technique for exploring the writer's connection with Spirit (www.Journal-Writing.com). The website emphasizing the dialog process and the exercises to open that "inner channel" have been visited by people from around the world.
In addition to people interested in keeping a journal, teachers, students, professional writers, and others have expressed appreciation for its assistance. At the suggestion of one of these individuals, Conversations Within, the eBook, was born.
