I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO shocking at writing in you. As you know, numerous times over the years I’ve tried to keep to a diary writing schedule and looking back on the few attempts I’ve made are hilarious. But fact is, two weeks is the max I ever manage. For some reason, I just can’t commit – no matter how beautiful you are (I’ve bought numerous gorgeous journals for this exact purpose), you just don’t hold my attention for long.
But I’ve been wondering of late if keeping some kind of journal would be therapeutic at this time when writing is a mission to achieve in my life. I’m seriously contemplating opening a new bright pink journal I bought last week and starting a journal/diary for a while.
I wonder if there’s any other writers out there who fail diaries like I do? Or do most writers keep journals as well?
As another aside, I barely slept a WINK last night cos I was waiting for my dear friend LEAH ASHTON to text me with news about how she’d done in the New Voices contest. In the end, I tried to turn off the light and go to sleep but I woke with the baby at 1.30am and checked all the possible announcement sites. As I read the good news – yep if ya haven’t heard, LEAH WON – on Facebook, my phone vibrated announcing a msg. AS IF I could sleep after that fabulous news.
So CONGRATS dear Leah and good luck with what lies ahead 🙂
As for you diary… I’ll keep contemplating the issue and maybe you’ll see me again sooner rather than later.
