Headlining -Journaling Tool

The fewer the words, the stronger the impression.

An honest tale speeds best being plainly told. William Shakespeare (King Richard III)

Headlines sum up experiences in just a few words. We can write headlines to define any experience. A good headline is typically less than 7 words. If youre in the mood, have fun with this by playing with alliteration, humour, verse, metaphors, parody, double reverse, rhyming, puns and duality.

If you like this process, start a page for daily headlines and you will eventually have a concise overview of the highlights in your life your own newspaper!

Here are a few examples of how you might headline a day:

Job interview sparks old fears

Reactions to Sam require more healing

Forgiveness needed and given

Got cross with the boss, but no job loss
