If I have not mention before, I have written a journal. But I stopped about 8 months ago. Saying that I did do it for most of last year. In my journal I use it to organise my life and projects I am working on plus extra thoughts about stuff on a particular day. Having many entries specifically talking about the creating process of my first book, the following list will be the day and excerpt of what I said.
