I'm kicking around trying to start keeping a journal again. However, I usually follow a pattern where I religiously post entries for a week or so, get bored with it, then stop. Then start again after two weeks or so because I feel guilty about not keeping up with it, do that for about three days, then say the hell with it...Until I get the itch to start keeping a journal again, six or so months later. At least I can be consistent about something. :tongue: Anyway, I'm just curious if anybody is better at keeping a journal and/or blog than I seem to be. (Though how somebody could be worse at is difficult to imagine.) I guess what I'm looking for is pointers about how folks manage to do what I seem not to be able to do, whether an off-line or an on-line format is your preference, whether you have any particular preference for one format vs. another, that sort of thing. I want to do this for several reasons: Candidly I've got some anti-life thoughts I'd like to put in writing. I understand and respect the terms of service here, and know that at least some of what I'd be babbling about would be a no-no. In complete contradiction to the above, I'm rather stumblingly trying to adopt a plan of self-improvement, at least as to getting my life in order. I think some feedback would likely be helpful. As little as I enjoy writing the entries, I do get a perverse kick about reading some of the older entries in what I do have saved. I'm going to try to do some 'serious' writing, where I cite sources and really try to think about things. (This is probably the least likely to happen...but a fella can dream, can't he?) I actually did keep a Blog for a very short while at WoM. Then they disappeared, which was a bit frustrating. I'm also not sure what I'd be posting about would be kosher there anyway. I set up a livejournal account quite a bit ago, I may just dust that off. Anyway, I'm just curious about what kind of experience other SF members have had with this.
