Working on another word. Boy do I love this journal. Could take a day off just to write…Sierra LaManna, Medical Intuitive
I finally had time this weekend to read through the prompts and spend some time responding to the first ones. I love the thoughtfulness of your questions, and the feeling of self-care that arises as I consider them and write. I have never liked keeping more than one journal at once; I like to integrate “responsive” writing (aka writing to prompts) into my daily journal, but at least for now I am writing on the pages of Go in Joy. I may change my mind later and simply do the writing in my main journal, but either way your prompts cover a lot of territory that would otherwise have gone unexplored. I love feeling so encouraged; I love feeling cherished first by the voice of the book (dear one) and then by my own voice on the page…Jenny Clark, Journaling Class Facilitator

How these books came into being:
Soon after my partner moves to the lower level of our shared rental, taking with him a bevy of papers and clothes which add chaos to our bedroom, I breathe into clarity, peace and connection with all we cannot see.
One morning before dawn, I’m awakened with the title and structure of the first book, Go In Joy! An Alphabetical Adventure, which invites essay titles from my healing journey to flow onto the page.
I write and write.
Moving into my office to alphabetize the essay titles, poems I’d written years earlier tap on my consciousness—add me here, leading some readers to say that these essay-supporting poems are their favorite part of the book.
Personally, I love how these poems add a layer of meaning to your journey with this book.
A structure to begin.
And I do.
With this structure to fulfill an internal call to inspire others by sharing lessons life has taught me, I’m able to write daily for the first time in a long, long time.
I write essay upon essay.
I re-write and rewrite, tweak and print, share and tweak…
Write and edit write and edit.
Synchronicities arrive, adding to this book-birthing ride of love, adventure and joy, allowing this book to emerge.
With humility and gratitude, I become an author!
May Go In Joy! An Alphabetical Adventure travel wide, reaching hearts and souls ready for my brand of inspiration, playfulness and joy.
Enjoy the book!
Join The Joy Movement!
Seven months later as I dress to lead a journaling class loosely based on Go In Joy! An Alphabetical Adventure, I hear, “How can you reach more people?”
Thank you Spirit!
I’m not sure…a webinar?
Off to class I go.
Just as the two students enrolled settle in, one says, “Joy, I don’t think you understand how VALUABLE the questions you ask are…I am growing and changing so much because of this class! You need to put these prompts into a book.”
I feel her words as my second Divine Assignment…yes…these questions inspiring others can reach more people if they are in a book, and when I lead class, I’ll have a book for participants.
Inspiration leads me onward…through two busy weeks in my life, though any time I am home, all I desire doing is sitting down to allow Go In Joy! Venture to Your Center – Journaling Prompts to Enliven Your Joy to come through.
I am focused, allowing, joyful as these powerful, playful prompts flow through my heart and hands, and my book support team turns out to be highly available with other projects on hold.
From idea to publication…whoosh!
Now two books have come through lil’ ol’ me to inspire you and your friends, dear one.
