Full description for Writing Away
"Writing Away" spins the romantic tradition of keeping a travel journal into a modern adventure in creativity and awareness. "Writing Away" is an illuminating, witty book introducing the travel journal as an instrument to help you observe and remember your travels in a more dynamic way by teaching you to keep an active record - and by convincing you, first and foremost, to write stuff down. More than a typical guide to keeping track of travel highlights, Spalding shows how to use pen and paper to connect with your outer and inner landscape by keeping a travel journal as a practice. "Writing Away" helps you slow down and commit to the present moment; it nurtures honesty and creativity, motivates your inner artist to discover creative material every step of the way, and demonstrates again and again how travelling - and keeping a journal while doing so - is the world's most valuable writing exercise.Designed to accompany, awaken, and inspire the journal-writing traveller, "Writing Away" includes more than fifty lively, experimental exercises to keep you interested in journaling and channel your experiences into fulfilling projects that also preserve memories. You will learn to embrace mishaps so as to enrich the whole experience, recognize in advance what you truly want to remember, tap into your senses, overcome writer's block and procrastination, and tackle discipline, routine, structure and momentum.Whether you're an aspiring artist or veteran writer, a first-time wanderer or seasoned traveller, an armchair adventurer or a curious spiritual soul, with "Writing Away" and a journal tucked into your bag, you will see the world - and yourself in it - differently.
