A journaling guide for each week of the year

Get your 2022 journal — available now

Have you ever told yourself someday you’re going to do some writing? Someday you’re going to put down on paper the stories of your life? Someday you’re going to start journaling as a pathway to personal growth? That “someday” has arrived.

All are Free to Write, available for sale on Amazon, is a one-year journal designed to get you thinking about your life and recording your thoughts. This volume corresponds with the holidays and special events of the 52-week calendar. There are writing prompts for every week of the year and blank pages for journaling.

Each writing prompt was once a blog post on Sheila Allee’s Free to Write newsletter, which launched in 2016. FTW began and continues to be a support and hopefully an inspiration to those who want to develop a journaling practice. To sign up for the newsletter, go to the upper right corner of this page.


Tell Your Story
…For Yourself, For Posterity

Promote Your BookEveryone has a story (or stories) to tell. Writing them down can be a gift to yourself, your friends and your family.

And the very act of writing can be therapeutic. Some people have found better health through writing. Others have gained inner strength when they find their own unique voice.

Sheila Allee has lived these truths. She found powerful emotional healing by writing about her uncle, who had a profound intellectual disability. Her memoir, My Father’s Eyes, is the result of her determination to share a moving and deeply personal story of transformation.

Now she is sharing with others what she learned about writing your own story and the rewarding experience it can be.

She offers classes in the following:

  • Recording your personal history
  • Writing to process grief
  • Writing to heal from trauma

“The reason I write is to explain my life to myself. I’ve also discovered that when I do, I’m explaining other people’s lives to them.”–Pat Conroy
