Journaling...Just make sure your journal is never subpoenaed. Mine was. If you are a witness in a case, or one of the protagonists, where your thoughts and attitudes, the deepest level of your mind and soul, could be considered germane to the issues of the lawsuit, your journals can be subpoenaed. (So can your diaries, BTW.)In my case, I handed my journals over with a snicker, because they weren't 'diaries', they were working journals. Clippings that gave me ideas; clippings that were just pretty and worth hanging on to; notations of plot lines; bits and snatches of dialog. Photographs from a travel brochure on Egypt showing a ruined statue from Memphis, Egypt(one of my stories is a murder mystery set in Ancient Egypt, and this one journal contained the very first blip of the idea that grew into the story in the course of about eight years); a sonnet or two - you get the drift.They were handed back without comment, and never were mentioned in the course of the litigation.Beej
