Following on from the spotlight for The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, did you keep a diary during your teenage years?
What was an average entry in your diary? And what was the most embarrassing or funny entry you can remember?
Never kept one, was never was the Diary type. Besides, I went to Lime House Boarding School and I had quite enough problems to be getting on with without a book filled with my innermost thoughts and feelings getting thrown into the fire.
Yeah I didn't really keep a diary either but I did try mainly cos I was a fan of the Doug tv series. It would always begin as the show did 'dear journal its me again Tom....' and then my own life would bring nothing to the table. Considering my lack of imagination at the time I have recently got a journal to write stories in being on my third book so late bloomer maybe.
I made a handful of attempts at keeping a diary, usually prompted by reading the Adrian Mole books. It's still around somewhere; I made about a week's worth of entries then it jumps ahead a couple of years, whereupon I chastise myself for my lack of commitment and pledge to do better this time. Then the next entry is dated the best part of a decade later and I don't think I even finished it... I will present the feeble excuse that I didn't have enough of interest going on to be worth writing about.
When I was in the 6th Form I took part in a month-long expedition to Morocco and I was the only member of the team who made an entry every day in the group journal, which I was quite proud of and got a lot of appreciation for later on from the other pupils and their families.
