I started writing in journals in order to confide in something that wouldn’t speak back to me. It allowed me to express myself in any way I felt like, with complete freedom. They contain travel, adventures and impressions, or to-do lists, but mostly they are the front story that people may know about and the back story that are my own thoughts. It’s a legacy to myself.
Sometimes I write in my journal and sometimes I don’t. If I have an empty journal lying around and I feel like having an emotional puke, then, you know, it ends up on the page. And it’s great in that way. It’s awesome!
The words in the journal are personal. They are about the inside and the truth. They are the thread that pull the truth onto the page.
That is my object, and that is the object.”
