I am a serious diary person. I have kept a diary since I was able to write, sure, the ones from when I was 6 don’t really make much sense, but it’s still fun to look over them and see what I was like when I was younger.
All the way up through my teens I have kept a diary close at hand, letting it be my best friend and telling it everything. I’m on my 7th serious diary at the moment (serious meaning that I don’t just moan, it holds more than just daily happenings inside) and after my operation I stopped writing in it. I think I just lost interest because I had more things to focus on, but today I finally picked it back up and started writing in it.
I am thrilled to have it back in my bag as a constant companion (yes, I am that sad that books are my companions) and to have the knowledge that if I get any random ideas for stories or poems I can just jot them down and look at them seriously later. In doing this I found loads of poems I had completely forgotten about. They aren’t good as I am in no way, shape or form a poet.
However, I did find one which I did really like about a wife in an unhappy marriage looking at a young couple who are much happier than she has ever been in her marriage. I really do like it, but don’t think anyone else will, so I am most definitely NOT prepared to share it with people.
You never know though, maybe someday I’ll be good at writing poetry and I will be able to share them with everyone!
I have also finally decided on what I am going to do about writing and how I am going to tackle it for the next few weeks, starting on Monday. I am going to finish the first draft of this novel and then focus on editing the first one. My boyfriend is going to read my first book and give me some hinters on what to change or what’s good so that will put me in a good direction for the start of editing!
As I have never edited anything before it will be interesting to see how it goes, but hopefully it’ll all be good! Hopefully I’ll meet people along the way who will be able to give me tips and such on what to do and how to tackle an entire novel.
One thing is for certain- my way will involve a lot of colour co-ordination. I love me some colours!
