The other day when I talked about my sister reading my letters from 1989 (ack), I was surprised by how many of you still have diaries/journals around the house. So let's take an informal poll.
How many volumes of old diaries/journals do you have?
How far back do they go?
Me? I mentioned the other day that I trashed all of mine. I also trashed all of my stories I wrote as a teen. Many reasons for this. I hated the clutter, I was embarrassed by the content, and their very existence seemed to be a magnet for snoopers. So I've got nothing except what I've been writing this year. I wish I had some of the stories I wrote when I was in elementary school, but I don't miss any of the other work.
