According to my Comp textbook, "Prewriting techniques are like the warm-ups you do before going out to jog -- they loosen you up, get you moving, and help you develop a sense of well-being and confidence." It also states, "Of all the prewriting techniques, keeping a journal (daily or almost daily) is the one most likely to make writing a part of your life."
That probably means I'd get more out of it if I wrote my entries before I spend hours studying and working on my assignments. I should be warming up here first. I should be making it a priority instead of something I do in my spare time.
I'm too brain-dead to post anything worth reading right now. I'm feeding the cat before she starts chewing on my textbooks and then hitting the sack.
