Creating a separate space for writing allows the freedom to write in one's own unique way, without worrying about structure or tying it to a larger thesis. This approach enables the writer to explore interesting topics and ideas that may not make it into the final piece. The speaker highlights the importance of carving out personal time for writing, especially in an educational system where writing is primarily associated with graded assignments. They raise the question of whether this emphasis on grading affects people's desire to write freely. The speaker shares their personal experience of having a supportive environment for writing, with their mother encouraging them to write in various journals and notebooks based on their interests. This positive experience helped them see writing as fun and exciting. The conversation concludes with the recognition that different forms of journaling can be just as valid as traditional journaling, such as recording personal experiences through collecting and documenting lipstick colors.
