Friday Web Finds

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post, here are a couple of interesting articles about the brain and writing:

I can’t believe it’s Friday already, the days just went by so fast this week! Work and a late summer road trip has kept me from responding to comments and visiting other blogs. Hopefully come Sunday I will be able to catch up.

Thankfully, I have been able to continue with my writing practice. Writing daily on my journals have allowed me to keep balance in my life.

I came across this feature story, Writing to Heal that encourages writing about the turbulent times in our lives. Some journal writers lament that their journals have become places where they rant. Meet Dr. James W. Pennebaker, who has spent 20 years encouraging people to rant.

Pennebaker says ““When people are given the opportunity to write about emotional upheavals, they often experience improved health, They go to the doctor less. They have changes in immune function. If they are first-year college students, their grades tend to go up. People will tell us months afterward that it’s been a very beneficial experience for them.”

So keep on writing,even if it feels like ranting!
