Journals as Fiction

Journals as fiction has been a bit of a theme for me lately. The ficition I am writing at the moment is the book that has been in my head for about ten years. Other writers will fully understand what I mean ... the book is real to me. The characters are real to me. But how to get it from 'real' to paper is the eternal struggle. I have started it many times and have many part chapters and musings both on my PC and in journals around the house.

I finally bit the bullet today and it is going to have two distinct parts and writing styles ... but ONE of these is the diary form.

"I bit the bullet."

It isn't as scary as I thought.
