ORZOLA : LEARN HOW TO JOURNAL


Online Journaling Courses

online journaling courses

I offer free, online journaling courses on specific topics.

The courses are 7-week long reflective writing practices that focus on a specific topic of your life. During the course, guided questions and short essays will help you deeply explore the topic and learn about yourself.

The Methodology of the Courses

You will receive daily questions (49 altogether).

Why? Because guided questions will support participants and ensure they always have something to write about. The daily emails with writing prompts serve as reminders and help keep the journaling habit rolling.

A different focus for each week with a short essay introducing the topic.

Why? To learn to write with a focus as well as explore the major areas of the topic in question.

Seven weeks long.

Why? Because I find short-time commitments easier to stick to and I would like to provide this journaling experience for many of you as well. So try to write every day for seven weeks, and don’t mind if you miss a day or two.

Every week you will reread your writing.

Why? Because this is how learning about yourself through writing is incorporated into the course. The 7th day of each week is dedicated to harvesting your key learning points from the previous week. This is achieved by rereading the entries from the first 6 days of the week.

Q&A

How much time does it take per day to participate?

As much as you devote to it. You may write one word, one paragraph or an essay each day. It’s up to you. It’s your work, and you do it for yourself.

Do I need to write on paper or online?

It’s up to you. Get a notebook, write the daily question in it, and start writing with our good old friend, the pen. I will certainly write with a pen in one of my printed journals, too. Or open a document, type your thoughts and save it for later. I do that many times, too.

How many emails will I get from you during the course?

During the 7-week course, you will get 49 emails altogether. That is one per day. Most of them will only include one question or writing exercise with my journal entries. However, I will send a couple of related short essays, too.

How much does it cost?

Online journaling courses on this site are FREE.

Can I join a course that already started?

Yes, of course. You may decide to only journal about the topic of a specific week. Alternatively, maybe you have found the course later than the starting date. Either way, just join in and follow along.

Feedback about the Start Journaling Course:

“For me, it was a great experience to start journaling, write each day a few sentences for a specific topic. It was easy and exciting. My favourite part was the observation of my language. It helped me to be more conscious in how to talk to my colleagues.”

 

Feedback about the Relationship-Focused Journaling Course:

“Sometimes I needed more instructions what you mean by a question. Your entries helped me to understand the depth and focus of a question. Mostly the questions were well understandable. Thank you.”
