I want the scene *and* the feelings

  1. My childhood/adolescent diaries are similar, although they do contain ‘to do’ lists and other mundane scribbling. I think I will also make more of an effort to describe events and moments in more detail for my future self, thank you for the inspiration! It also strikes me as great writing practice in general!


  2. Great post! I have kept many of the journals I wrote in as a teenager and always tell myself “when I have time” I should look them over. I never thought of transcribing them though until now. And I’ve got bunches of little notebooks from my mom, who passed last year. She was a woman who wrote down details. Every single day. I will be giving them a look too. Thanks for the inspiration!!
