On JemPoems

He leans over me with his plastic goggles

and his mouth hidden behind white gauze.

Do you keep a diary - a journal? For a while now I’ve been keeping one, but I’m not very good at writing in it. It’s an online diary using an application called Day One. It’s available on Mac OS X and Apple devices, which makes it easy to create entries whenever or wherever you are.

According to productivity experts, keeping a diary is a great way to improve your productivity.

I seem to write in the journal in fits and starts - I go for a few weeks non-stop, with an entry or two each day and then stop completely for a month or so. It’s one of those things that should be so easy to do, and it doesn’t have to be a masterpiece. We can't all be Tony Benn, after all, with his prolific diary writing, and writing a diary should be a personal thing and not written in anticipation of being read by others.
