Ask yourself, “What messages do I want to leave behind?”

Then immediately write whatever you need to express, however you need to express it. The craft should be as natural as breathing; why waste time overthinking it? If you’re happy today, write about it. Edit later. If you’re grieving, write a remembrance. If you’re seething with anger, write as a catharsis.
