- The Diarist's Journal Issue #3
concerning the Fake, the Fictional and the Published
I love this magazine. And was intrigued by this issue because I've never
read any published diaries. All of the articles were excellent and
I very much enjoyed reading. You should go buy it now!
The article "Opal Whiteley: Fraud or Not?" by Raymond Lee Zager, got me
interested in buying
Opal: The Journal of an Understanding Heart. There were several
excerpts in the article, and Opal's writing is just delightful. Does it matter if the
diary was written by a 6 year old genius or by an adult on the verge of
mental illness? I don't know, but I'm going to read it anyway.

I have fun reading these and looking at the pictures. Lots of ideas spring

Is going through
The New Diary, Tristine Rainer
And I've decided to re-read the book along with them. The facilitator
is posting some good prompts. I lurk.
- I made myself a blank book. Using the
of course. But a different kind of cover, since I don't do glue.
My new book has several kinds of paper for the pages. Some deep green, some
teal and the center of each signature is white cardstock... which will be
watercolored greens and blues. yum. The cover is soft back and covered
with a great printed fabric of green fern leaves. I love leaves.
And the cover is a new experiment. I made a lot of these little books and
gave them as presents last xmas. Twelve books, I think it was. And I was
not really thrilled with the cloth covers I made. But I really like how
the new cover on my leaf book turned out. yay me.
