In NPR’s article, “The Writing Assignment That Changes Lives,” a researcher co-authored a paper that demonstrates a startling effect of writing on organizing thoughts and emotions.

“Why do you do what you do? What is the engine that keeps you up late at night or gets you going in the morning? Where is your happy place? What stands between you and your ultimate dream?”
