    Do you Keep a Journal or Diary?

    Do you or have you kept a journal or diary? Is it about a specific topic or area in your life or just daily activities?

    Re: Do you Keep a Journal or Diary?

    I keep a food journal as part of my weight loss program. It's a little notebook that fits into my purse- every day has a page, and I write down what I eat and when, and how many calories. On the bottom of every page I keep track of how much water I'm drinking. 

    I also have a Livejournal blog... but sometimes there are a few months between entries! I'm not very good at keeping it up. There are just a few close friends who read it.

     I carry a 4" x 6" sketchbook with me at all times, and complete detailed graphite drawings of the grandchildren from reference photos. I usually draw during sermons (45 minutes) to keep me focused. When I sign them--they take about two to three weeks, I put a Bible reference under my signature from the sermon I finished the drawing. 

    I also take notes during the sermons, usually two to three pages, and keep the journals.

    I write one page "letters" instead of cards. They are surprisingly well-received. I also pen--well, keyboard, an occasional one page update on what I have been up to lately to a small group of family/friends who almost always update me about their lives! It works. I keep a copy of these.

    Occasionally, I write small vignettes about my childhood. I wouldn't call it a biography by any means. It will be incomplete and it is meant to be that way.
