Writing correctly does matter though and helps you write more correctly. Later, you can think more about being correct. Getting feedback on your writing - even journals - is important. I'll write more about that and journals another time.
Today I got up. I really didn’t want to get up, but I had to. I went to school thinking I wouldn’t survive it. English was horrid: Mr. Scott talked about journals and I just hate this thing. Math was okay: Mrs. Merck was in a good mood. Science was fun and social studies was pretty interesting, so all in all, it was a decent day.One way you can improve your journal writing is to add some details: use literary devices, sensory details, and action verbs to add depth. Next, try adding some background details. Ask yourself, “Why?”; then answer that question. A simple sixty-six word entry, with some thoughtful (re)writing, can actually become much more.
