Even if you do not consider yourself one to journal because maybe you are into more technical or academic writing, you should still consider keeping a paper journal handy. It’s great to have everything we need at the disposal of our fingertips when we are writing on our computers, laptops or phones. However, these devices can also serve as a distraction. Every now and then it helps to write in a journal. This way you have complete focus on your thoughts, ideas, and the words that you put on the page.
