How Was My Day?

“Keep a journal. Like a word processing program or pen, this is an essential tool for the writer. Write about yourself, or nature's beauty, or your husband’s snoring which hardly gave you sleep last night or how you could strangle the neighbor’s dog. Start your writing day with an entry in your journal. Think of that as your warming up exercise.” Moushui Chakrabarty in Working at Writing
I often read articles that discuss well-known authors who keep personal journals. I don’t. I started twice, but never got far. I’m either a boring person, don’t like writing about myself, or lack the discipline to do it. :) As for a warm up exercise to begin my writing for the day, that’s one purpose of this blog.
