One of the other participants in NaBloPoMo whom I have been following very closely is Rachel at Crunchy Turtle. In particular, I've been interested in her journaling tips on Mondays. Today, she talked about clustering, something I've done before, but not for years. Actually, it's been years since I've done any sort of writing exercise, much to my chagrin. So I thought I'd give it a try. I did it just the way Rachel describes, without stopping for three minutes, writing down whatever came to mind. This is my cluster:

Not sure where to go from here, but hopefully Rachel will tell me!


I can't see the whole cluster but it looks like "stuck" and "embarrassment" are coming up more than once. Definitely look at the cluster word and reoccurring words and the relationship or associations between them. Finding the core part of the issue will help you deal with the issue.

Also look at your cluster or if you aren't getting anything maybe come back to it, or try another word that's similar.

You can journal (free write) about the common theme's you've discovered or the relationships these themes have with Money or you can cluster again with the new words that are sticking out to you to dig deeper. Only you can really interpret your cluster.
