The most effective expressive writing creates connections. It links happenings from the past and present with future projections. It explores the thoughts, feelings and behaviours that repeat over the course of our lives. This “big picture” approach helps to develop a wider web of self-understanding and a deeper awareness of the meaning that we can take from our struggles.

This is a really great idea, I love the image of the web. What you’re saying is, this web is how we attribute meaning to events of our lives? (After writing about it.)

How do we keep this “web” in mind mid-expressive free-write? Is this an approach we develop after the writing, in the initial editing process? Is there a formula to an effective web?

Thanks (:
