I can answer questions on the benefits of journal-writing; how to arrange material; whether to organize tightly or just let it all out; writing for the future; how to keep going, etc.
Too many to list
I have enjoyed journaling for many years. There is really no special technique to it, but still questions are often asked, and I enjoy responding to them.
I am doing Volume 97 of my journal now - I hope to make 200!
My sister taught me to keep my journals lively and interesting by including photos, cartoons and other artwork I admire, recipies I mean to try someday, pithy sayings, etc. I also do some work on my novels in my journal. Truly a journal can be almost anything but most of all it should be fun.
I watched CourtTV and CNN through the war in Afghanistan and kept careful notes on what was going on. Who knows? My journal may be "prime historical material" one day!

Dear Lisa: I am not sure I understand what you mean by "citations," but if you are planning to include in your paper direct quotes from any source, you should cite them, yes, that is, give credit by
