What is the English word

I do not know how it is called in English. Basically letting your mind free and writing down whatever comes to your mind. It is very therapeutic and I do it almost every day. It is a part of my journal that I have been keeping.

How is it called in English?

Maybe free form writing or stream of consciousness writing?

I think in psychology it’s called free association.

I would call it “stream of consciousness”, like the way Joyce wrote in a couple of his books.

If you’re feeling in an artsy mood you can call it automatic writing, although the term is most strongly associated with French writers like Andre Breton.
