Writing a Diary - How to get Started

My Words to You, Parent-to-child Diary, A beautiful keepsake book to treasure for a LIFETIME

As a busy mum, the idea of writing a diary might feel overwhelming, but it can be a beautiful way to create a keepsake for your children.

Here are some recommendations to help you get started

  • Step 1. START SMALL: Begin with short and fun messages that are easy to write and won’t take up much of your time.
    It can be as simple as jotting down a funny anecdote from your day or sharing a special moment you had with your children.

  • Step 2. BE CONSISTENT: Set aside a specific time each day or week to write in your diary.
    Even just a few minutes dedicated to capturing your thoughts can make a difference. Consistency will help you form a habit and ensure you create a meaningful keepsake over time.

  • Step 3. WRITE FROM THE HEART: Let your emotions and love for your children guide your writing.
    Share your thoughts, dreams, hopes, and wishes for them. Write about the moments that make you proud, the challenges you’ve overcome together, and the joys they bring into your life.

  • Step 4. INCLUDE PHOTOS AND MEMENTOS: Add visual elements to your diary by including photos, ticket stubs, drawings, or any other keepsakes that hold significance.
    These will enhance the memories and create a multi-dimensional keepsake for your children.

  • Step 5. DON’T WORRY ABOUT PERFECTION: Remember, there’s no right or wrong way to write in a diary.
    It’s a personal journey, so don’t stress about grammar or style. Just let your words flow naturally and authentically.

  • Step 6. HAVE FUN WITH IT: Writing a diary should be an enjoyable experience, so don’t put too much pressure on yourself.
    Experiment with different writing styles, use colorful pens or stickers, and let your creativity shine through.

By starting small, being consistent, writing from the heart, including visual elements, embracing imperfection, and having fun, you’ll create a meaningful and lasting keepsake for your children to cherish forever.
