#1 Know What Topic You Are Talking About
Before you start writing your own journal, make sure that you have a topic to talk about, if not, you will just be writing aimlessly and your journal will not make sense.

#2 Reflect On It
Now that you have decided on the topic that you are going to talk about in your journal, you have to reflect on the topic that you have chosen. Brainstorm on the topic that you have chosen so that you will know the points that you want to talk about in the topic that you have chosen. Also, by reflecting on the topic that you have chosen, you can evaluate whether or not the topic you have chosen is relevant or not.
#3 Date Every Entry
It is very important for you to date every journal entry that you have so that you can keep track on the things that you have been writing up about. This will also allow you to see in chronological order your past journals up till now, you can see how much you have improved or have been constant throughout all the journal entries that you have done. You can also see your progress at the same time from your first journal to your latest ones.
#4 Re-read Everything Once You Are Done
Once you are done with your journal, make sure to re-read the whole thing again and again to make sure that you do not have any error in your grammar or spelling. This will also help you check whether the things that you have wrote actually make sense!
