Do you keep a journal?

I've been meaning to start one for a while, but never managed to get one started. Plus, I'm not very good at those things, and I probably would stop after a month or so.

I would think I would also. But a experienced writer suggested it, so I decided to start one.

lol I would never start a journel because It (to me) would be extra work that I would never look back on. I always remember most anything that matters to me. I always thought though that a dream diary would help my writing a lot , and give me ideas and such.
By the way, which experienced writer told you this?

I started one, and am hoping for some writing improvements. Does anyone else have a writing journal?
I satrted a journal 9 years ago (at 10 years old if you want, 25th December 1996, at my birthday) and it isn't finished yet. I started it in English (which is harder since I am not really English, I still not good), and your vocabulary will grow every day, so you can write an essay better.
It isn't really an extra work, because if we created it, it is because we have many free time and we want to do a time-consuming against the boring world. :)nuts:)
Also, it increases the rate at what you think. At 10 years old, you may write 30 lines (A4 format, almost 1000 words) after 1 hour whereas after writing long and long, you write 30 lines over 15 minutes.

Just to say : My journal has 10852 pages (3,30 p/day, 102,34 lines p/day) and it isn't finished. It took me 57 books of 192 A4 pages and I will finish the 57st in some days. Need to track back old dreams I made because I didn't wrote a listfile for all my pages. I do not know where are all my history writings, because they are all scattered along the pages. I recently started to read my journal from its starting point, I still only at the page 520 after 15 days of reading (almost 105 minutes per day). I am just registering whatever I find interesting.

To start writing a journal, it is easier to write events instead of a dream, because it is harder. When I started to write a dream, it tooks me age to write it fully (almost 3 months for only 10 pages, :confused: 3 months is 90 pages normally). Events still the best to start writing a journal. And with a "J" (Journal) if it is entirly yours.

Alright, that may be true, but I still just dont think a journal is my kind of thing.

Writing your journal will be only for fun if you do not know what to do. :p You'll see it is time-consuming when you have no ideas.

It shows :p.

Anyway, I would never start a journal in fear of someone reading it. Isn't really a "guy" thing anyway. But Chocobo, that's one bloody huge journal, congrats on it, pics please.

Depends what he wrote.

I might start a dream diary some day, and to what Chocobo said,
It doesn't matter how many pages you have, but what you have in it. Dreams are much cooler too ;)

Eh, as a child I wrote one... It got thrown out :D During a forced cleaning by my parents. But really, would anyone with a sane mind want to read the life of the Seth? I think not.

As for the dream diary thing, I can't even do that. I only ever dream once in a great while and believe it or not, most of the time I don't even know it. I have... Odd dreams. Well, the dreams themselves are of everyday shit, but believe it or not (again) but whenever I dream up a day or a conversation, it eventually happens :D I'm clairvoyant, punks :cool: :shades:

Let's see....

I've never had a journal. Never saw the point. My life isn't worth communicating to people who want to read it. They'd think some of the things I've observed are illusions and fragments of the mind anyhow.

And I haven't made a dream journal, though it'd be an interesting idea, since a lot of my dreams eventually occur, while the rest, which border on insanity as usual, aren't really worth writing about, though every now and then I recount them to laugh at them with my friends. The Subconscious is a weird place.

I have a better time remembering dreams, especially when they are awesome ;)
but I once had this one dream that was like the best (well maybe second) dream ever, where it had something to do with Harry potter, purple mist, Hagrid, the sky, and a weird feeling, then there was another with a castle but ANYWAYS. Then you can recount them much better
 
I keep a notebook of all my story ideas, but I don't keep one for my personal stuff. I used to but my friends were way too nosy so I stopped. And my dreams aren't things that I want to remember so I never write them down.
