Question: So, I started a diary last week, and I've only written in it on one day. I want to write in it every day, but I just don't do it. I go to bed at 11:30 on school nights because of music lessons/homework, so by writting then, I end up going to bed at 12 or 12:30. And on weekends, I don't seem to want to write. See, last night, we had this whole argument as a family, and my dad called me all these horrible things, and threw plates, and drove away. And my mom blamed it on me. I ran upstairs, sobbing. And I didn't write in my journal. Because I thought how pathetic my life is, and I was to upset to carry the weight of the pen in my hand. How can I make myself write in it? I want to document my life. And I love to write And is it ok to write song lyrics in it? I love music

There's a website called Helium or something like that. Type it in your address bar with .com at the end. You get paid if you win contests, and publishers are always looking there for creative writers.

You can start by copying this post. The thing is, some people are journalists and some aren't. I love to write, but I've never been able to keep a journal. It doesn't have to be every day. Write when you have something to say. If you've written the lyrics they should go into a journal so you'll have them if you want them. Think of the journal as your friend. Your feelings about the incident with your dad could have been written there. And if there's abuse going on in your family,you should find someone to talk to.

One thing that works well for me (of course I don't keep a diary) when writing in general is to type it out on the computer rather than write it on paper, since an empty sheet can sometimes look intimidating. Or, silly as this sounds, find yourself a notebook that you are REALLY comfortable writing into: consider the cover, the thickness, the size of paper, and space bw lines. Also to spice up your diary, try writing entries in different mediums and styles. My friend did this an autobiography class she was taking, and believe me, life is not that interesting at our school but she got quite a few thoughts down using this. Try: -poetry like haiku, acrostic, limmerick, prose -stream of consciousness -third person (diff viewpts) -a diagram, pic, timeline Just an idea that may or may not work for certain people. Good luck!

That is something that you need to get yourself in the habit of doing. In order to do that, you need to set aside a specific time each day to write, and make sure you do it every day at that time. And you don't have to write long entries. Just sit down at your chosen time and write a few sentences. They don't even have to make sense. Just write anything, to help get yourself in the habit. Eventually after a while of doing this, you'll likely find yourself wanting to write more. As for song lyrics, why not? It's your own personal diary. Write whatever the frig you want!

A diary is the book to express exactly how you feel, so you can open up as much as you want to and write about what ever! People find this as an escape and a place to just write down what they cant say out loud, so get it down on paper.. The key is to write a date! Which means that writing song lyrics to express your emotions and feeling for the set date, is ok... You can fill it with what ever that comes to your mind! As soon as its personal, and all YOU!

You don't have a complete question to analyse yet, but your board-game idea is a fine one. My suggestion is to go online and search under a number of keyword phrases for information on board-game behavior. You can used terms in Google like "game behavior," "board games," "board-game habits," and the like. As you search, note which areas have good-quality information, and then read enought to formulate your initial question. I would suggest not making the question personal to you, but rather to generalize it so that you can research it effectively. Otherwise, it becomes opinion or journaling, which I'm sure your professor won't accept. You might, for example, end up with a question that attempts to relate the behavoirs of game-board players and video gamers. Good luck with your paper.
