Today is February 7, 2014. I am alive and well.

I’ve been reading some old journal entries I wrote in 2006. Do you think it is okay to include journal entries in a memoir? I am  working on my second book. I’m considering including journal entries. I am not whining in any of them, just reporting on my day. When did diary become journal, and are they two different things. I remember writing in my diary when I was 12 about a boy I liked, Charlie. My sister found and read my diary, and then teased me relentless about my crush on Charlie. I threw that diary away and didn’t write another single word for years. Today, I am a poet. I think journal writing uses energy I could have used for a poem. But then I am suppose to be working on my second book….I have been. I am 150 pages in.
