“I guess whatever maturity is there may be there because I’ve been keeping a journal forever. In high school my friends would make fun of me-you’re doing your man diary again. So I was always trying to translate experience into words.” Anthony Doerr is an author of novels and short stories.
“I’m always trying to figure out ways to keep hold of memories. My one-sentence journals, for instance.” Gretchen Rubin is an author, blogger and speaker. Rubin is the creator of the blog The Happiness Project, empowering people to have happier lives.
“Life’s That Way was an extraordinarily difficult book to write, because it wasn’t written as a book. It was written as a journal of events that were happening as I wrote it, without the space or time either to digest or analyze those events and without the hindsight and peace that writing in the aftermath would have provided.” Jim Beaver; actor, playwright, screenwriter, director and film historian.
“I keep a quotes journal-of every sentence that I’ve wanted to remember from my reading of the past 30 years.” Richard Powers, a storyteller whose written works explore the effects of modern science and technology.
“I keep a journal, and every day I write down one great play that I had that day. I don’t write down any negatives.” Heather O’Reilly, a three-time Olympic gold medalist.
“I really liked the idea of creating a journal myself. It’s like the way I clear my throat. I write a page every day, maybe 500 words. It could be something I’m specifically worried about in the new novel; it could be a question I want answered; ti could be something that’s going on in my personal life. I just use it as an exercise.” Elizabeth George, author of mysteries.
“Well, I always wanted to write from the time I was very little, and my mother encouraged me. She wrote a journal from the time she was 15 up until the age of 76.” Francine Rivers, author of Christian fiction and inspirational romance.
