About this Interactive Journal:
The Love Story is one of the first interactive journals in the world to address heartbreak through multimedia journaling. We believe that while coping with the pain of grief and loss, one can discover the inner artist in ourselves. We have featured 40 artists who have not only gone through loss, but who have also given their authentic, raw, and honest pain to passion testimonies. We invite you to journal from their stories and submit your journal entries with the love story creative community at www.thelovestory.org/share. Welcome to “artist-inspired journaling,” a new way of connecting, creating, and contributing from heartbreak.
