I’ve never been disciplined enough to keep a diary long-term. But I did keep one for a month in 2007, and then had a crack at another for a fortnight in 2019. The two diaries were profoundly different in tone and content. The 2007 diary was all conflict and disappointment as I lurched from acting to writing to producing in an effort to get “ahead” – even though I didn’t know where “ahead” was or what would be waiting for me when I got there.
Some great diary entries there! I also enjoy the Richard Burton diaries someone has going on Twitter.
