Heres a little secret: instead of trying to write poetically, write your raw feelings and what may have caused them. You’ll find that the more you do this, the better you can comprehend your thoughts and emotions. This is an important skill to have when describing a character’s feelings about something. I have found that your journaling gets deeper and more detailed the more you go on, so stick to it!!
I believe that when you write with inspiration you grow in writing the most and you will also grow in life and day to day challenges because of the skill you learn from journaling, stepping back. Giving your day or week another perspective and being able to write down all those feelings gives you an opportunity to help yourself through a lot. So yes, it makes you a better writer but more importantly a better person!!
I would agree that keeping a log/journal may allow feelings to be understood in the context of the bigger picture, thus easing the trial of writing openly about would are ultimately trivial emotions
I also find it wonderful documenting my life in a way that is just for myself. I recently sat and went through a whole stack of old journals and it was so lovely reliving old adventures, remembering old lives and realising how far I’ve come.
Although I’d say that Journaling isn’t the best choice if you’re looking to become better but it’s one step forward if you wanna become a writer!
Let’s say for example that you are trying to get better at writing novels/stories. Then you might try to write your journal as a narrative of your life. You’d want to focus on conveying the important details in a way that is interesting to the reader.
Another thing you could try is keeping a journal about the writing process itself. So if you’re writing a story you could journal about the characters (strengths, weaknesses, personalities, etc.) or the world they live in.
Having everything written down in one place can help you organise your ideas better which would help keep your writing more consistent or better thought out.
