Be Inspired to Write
With LifeJournal for Writers, you will look forward to sitting down to work in an encouraging and inspiring writing environment. Open any of hundreds of writing prompts especially designed to stimulate your thinking and to jumpstart your writing. It's like having a writing coach at your side. Quotes by accomplished writers about the writing process offer more food for thought. Interactive tools will keep you coming back again and again to write--even when you are not entirely sure what you want to write about.
Search, Review, and Reflect
LifeJournal for Writers makes it easy to find and review passages about yourself, your family, your relationships, your colleagues, your reading, your travels, your obsessions, and your goals. The Search and Review tools let you find exactly the writing you are looking for--by topics, keywords, date, and journal type. You can quickly compile notes scattered in numbers of entries, compare similar drafts, or mine personal journal entries to use for other pieces. When you need to see your body of work more clearly, LifeJournal for Writers helps you pull it all together to re-read, mine, and reshape.
The unique and innovative "Daily Pulse" tool adds a new dimension, allowing you to track your moods, monitor your writing productivity, or graph your ability to stay in flow. The Timeline helps you set goals, record writing achievements, and track important life events (your or your characters') to use in writing projects. This comprehensive writing software, not only helps you write, but helps you see yourself and your work more clearly.
Let LifeJournal for Writers help you increase your skill with the craft, access your writing self with ease, prevent you from losing important writing, and facilitate the self-discovery and insight that writing well provides.
What's New in Version 3?
LifeJournal 3 has the same comprehensive and flexible structure of LifeJournal 2, with many features expanded in ways that LifeJournal customers have asked for, and some new features that we know you'll love!
More customization: Now you can customize LifeJournal even more, making it look and feel the way you want it! We've added many new themes and color schemes to choose from, with a sampling of some new theme buttons. (And not to worry, we kept the LJ2 available buttons as well.)
Listen to wisdom from journaling experts: Any journal writer can fall into a writing dry spell, and then it's the perfect time to find encouragement and inspiration from a wise source. Within LifeJournal 3 you'll find dozens of one minute wisdom spoken to you from some of the top names in the journaling world: Christina Baldwin, Lucia Capacchione, Mark Matousek, Gillie Bolton, Sheila Bender, Joyce Chapman, Beth Jacobs, and Susan Borkin! (and more coming...)
New ways to find life patterns with Templates: If you are looking for patterns or focusing on a particular aspect of your life, create a template. A template is a set of questions that you ask yourself periodically. For example, our basic template has one question about the highlight of your day. After you have answered those questions for several months you may discern a pattern of things that you really love--that you might not have even realized previously. LifeJournal 3 includes default templates and gives you an easy way to create your own!
Stay within LifeJournal to post to your Wordpress blog: Keep your private writing and your public writing all in the same place!. Upload directly to your Wordpress blog from LifeJournal.
Greatly expanded Timeline: Now you can display any of the types of journal entries (not just Life History) on the timeline. Better navigation!
New prompts related especially to writing about your past! Great for getting started on your memoir!
More customization! Now you can create your own background using an image you select and then either tile or center it.
Yes, even more customization! Some of us instantly get into journal writing mode when we hear that LifeJournal opening guitar riff. But if you want to listen a different sound when you open LJ3, just browse to a .wav audio file you'd like.
More printing possibilities: Print the contents of the Journal Explorer, the Topics List, a Table of Contents when you print out multiple journal entries, and more!
Write in any (Unicode-based) language: That includes such languages as Spanish, French, German, Italian, Greek, Arabic, Cyrillic, Dutch, Swedish, Danish, Portuguese, Italian, and Hebrew-- but doesn’t include Chinese, Japanese, and Korean.
Unlimited journal types are now possible. You can keep more than the six limitation that you had in LJ2. Keep a food journal, a health journal, a poetry journal, an exercise journal, work journal, relationship journal, together all in one comprehensive LifeJournal!
Export into PDF format now, as well as previously allowable formats html, rtf, and txt
Assigning Topics to Passages with different color: As always you can tag or assign topic(s) to passages, but now you can have the highlight of different topics be in different colors
