Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) October 31, 2008
Ruth Folit, president of Chronicles Software Company, announced the journal software company is offering a series of webinars for those who want to learn about journal writing and for those who want to learn how to use the journal program LifeJournal.
Ruth Folit explains, "We have not only created the innovative journal program LifeJournal, but we also are dedicated to helping people learn about journal writing. With the global economy in a tailspin, and consequently people feeling very stressed, journal writing is a particularly valuable tool for maintaining equilibrium in uncertain times. Because we strongly believe in the power of writing for personal growth, improved health, and reduced stress, we offer these educational services to all journal writers."
A one hour free webinar with Ruth Folit describes the benefits of keeping a journal, introduces the workings of the journal program, offers suggestions to use journal writing to reduce stress, and provides an opportunity for participants to ask questions. A different webinar, an hour and a half session with author, poet, and writing coach Sheila Bender walks writers through the process of turning a journal entry into personal entry.

LifeJournal enriches the journal writing process, allowing both personal and professional diary writers to be more efficient, to be better organized, and to more easily gain insight into their lives. LifeJournal is a journal writers' toolkit that includes:
- organizational and searching tools to quickly retrieve particular entries
- tracking mechanisms to monitor behavior and goals
- a life history timeline to include writing and multimedia files
- embedded quotes and prompts to jumpstart writing
- a set of journaling techniques to widen the scope of your writing
- password-protection and encryption to insure privacy
Journals are used both professionally and personally by writers to record, reflect upon, and improve their lives. Among those who keep journals are professional and aspiring writers; people with health issues; people in transition--college graduates, those recently divorced, or new parents; memoirists; people interested in personal growth and self-development; teachers; engineers; and lawyers.
LifeJournal was first produced in 1999; more than 30,000 copies have been sold worldwide. Chronicles Software Company is located in Sarasota, Florida. A free demo is available online at http://www.lifejournal.com/download.
