I've kept a notebook since I was about nine years old. Writing in a notebook has been my constant source of strength and the way that I've processed the world around me, for as long as I can remember. I have mapped and chronicled my trials and victories in writing, and I believe, deeply, that it has made a profound difference in the quality and my appreciation for life.
I share my love for personal writing and try to support others who want to engage in personal writing for self-empowerment with my daily email, Write., in which I send writing prompts, tips, and thoughts throughout the week.
As part of promoting my love of personal writing, and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy my favorite notebook, I'm hosting a Traveler's Company Traveler's Notebook Giveaway. This is a regular size traveler's notebook made by Traveler's Company. It retails for approximately $58.00. You can read more about it here, on Baum-Kuchen's website.
For a chance to win, I would love to hear more about why you think personal writing is of value. Please write brief personal response of 150 - 250 words. The theme is "On Keeping a Notebook." All essays and responses received become the property of Trina O'Gorman, LLC., with all rights, and may be used to promote personal writing. Please email your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure to include your first name and email address on your actual response/essay, so your information is with your writing if they are printed. All entries will be read, but the winner will be selected randomly by selecting a number. Entries will be numbered in the order received and a randomizer will be used to select the number. The deadline will be Wednesday, August 15, 2018. Winners will be announced on Friday, August 17th at 12 noon EST.
Please feel free to contact me, if you should have any questions.
