i am not always the best at journaling. let me explain: i am good at remembering to write, and remembering to do it often -- but as far as keeping a straightforward, linear, thoughtful record of my life's happenings? absolutely not. i've made a good faith effort, but it always turns to rambling too quickly -- to lists, and prose poems, and stories. the attempts are useful -- well, insofar as being a jumping-off points to other creative work. so toward that end, i don't think i'll ever really try to remedy the wandering eye of my writing mind.
