The ‘WRITE’ Model

Here’s an easy-to-remember model I’ve created that combines writing & positive psychology.

It’s called WRITE. If you want to get started writing for happiness, I hope it provides a helpful structure for thinking about the ways writing can increase wellbeing.

What does WRITE stand for?


Writing lets us define what makes our life meaningful & worth living


Writing is a support in tough times.


Writing helps us understand ourselves & others better.


Writing can encourage recognition of our strengths and help us pursue them.


Writing is a way of being more mindful of & engaged with daily life.

If you like the model, please share it. I’ll be offering more in depth ways to use the model in the coming months.
