Do You Keep a Diary or a Journal?

JournalDiaries or Journals have always been a popular thing to keep.

I have kept a diary on and off since I before I was a teenager. If something is bothering me, I tend to want to write it down. This is common practise amongst many – whether it’s to work through an issue or simply to keep a memory of your life at the time of writing. Some write for themselves and others write on a blog for public viewing. My blog tends to be about general thoughts and opinions whereas my journal is includes more thoughts and emotional feelings. I have tried a few apps – MyWonderful Days on my iPad being a personal favourite but I seem to come back to a notebook and pen most of the time.

Do you keep a diary or journal? How long have you been keeping one? Do you write for yourself or an audience? Have you become more inclined to write in one more or less as you’ve got older? Are you a person who has never kept one?

I’m Laura. I started Novel Kicks in 2009. I wanted a place to post my writing as well as give other writers like me the opportunity to do the same. There is also a monthly book club, a writing room which features writing prompts, book reviews, competitions, author interviews and guest posts.

I grew up by the sea (my favourite place in the world) and I currently live in Hampshire. I am married to Chris, have a cat named Buddy and I would love to be a writer. I’m trying to write the novel I’ve talked so much about writing if only I could stop pressing delete. I’ve loved writing since creative writing classes in primary school. I have always wanted to see my teacher Miss Sayers again and thank her for the encouragement. When not trying to write the novel or writing snippets of stories on anything I can get my hands on, I love reading, dancing like a loon and singing to myself very badly. My current obsession is Once Upon a Time and I would be happy to live with magic in the enchanted forest surrounded by all those wonderful stories provided that world also included Harry Potter. I love reading chick lit. contemporary fiction and novels with mystery.

    WEhen I was yoiunger I did keep one but as the years passed I stopped as I just didn’t have time. Four children and an elderly parent to look after as well as a full time job made it very difficult. I regret that I din’t keep it up as now I cant always remmber when things happened and the steps that the events took.
