Some of my favorite heroines have kept diaries. And one of my favorite book series Sorcery and Cecelia is written in the form of diaries and letters. The end result of all that reading about writing has been that I have long wished to keep a journal. I have literally dozens of blank books all waiting for me to write something brilliant in them. They were probably destined to remain blank. My attempts at journaling just never stuck. The fact is my life is pretty bland, my thoughts not really all that scintillating.
