I am currently taking a writing workshop through the local library and the teacher has advised we journal as homework.
I have never really kept a diary (6 months as an 8 yr old doesn't really count) and although I do have some wonderful trip journals, those are short term event focused writing.
I have a really hard time journalling daily - not that I find my life boring - but that I just can't seem to find the oomph to actually write my day down.
Many people have told me I should write a memoir, and I sometimes play with the idea of doing it as a series of diary entries (probably the only way I could make writing about myself palatable) but beyond that I struggle.
What are the thoughts of the rest of you? Do you journal? If so, what about and why and how often? If not, do you think you should?
