Is keeping a daily diary one of your New Year’s resolutions? How many days pass before you desist?
Every December I place my new desk diary on the writing-table in my bedroom, determined to fill its pristine pages with delightfully disparate descriptions of my diverse days to delight my descendants. The reality is that by mid-March I give up and my only diary entries are scribbled appointments in my pocket diary, backed up by iCal dashing between my devices. I have decided that next year I shall delay the start of writing in my desk diary until April 1st so at least different dates have detailed data of my daily doings.
This is the same experience I have with my diary. Some people are regimented and able to make the daily entry, but I am not within that fraternity.
Thanks for the comment Joe; perhaps we are just destined to write novels and blogs
That’s an innovative way of dealing with a problem I too encounter 🙂 Good luck with April’s diary and perhaps your blog will serve some of that purpose.

Now that I am writing this blog I fear that my desk diary will be even more neglected but thanks for wishing me luck with it; I’m not sure reading my blog could ever compete with the thrill of that moment when you sit down to read your grandmother’s diary found at the back of a drawer.
