  1. Do you ever rip out any pages from your journal?

Nope. It all stays. The good, the sad, and the crazy.

  1. What do you usually write about?

For years, I would write when I had to unload emotionally. But lately, I’ve been working through some reflection questions. They’ve helped me work through some craziness.

  1. What inspired you to writing in the beginning?

I honestly don’t remember. My first diary is dated 1995, twenty years ago. I’ve always like having a place when I could work through things privately.
