So today was the first day of the WIFYR conference, and it was great fun to see many familiar faces. Also, I always learn new things, too. Today in my breakout session wherein I discussed types of journaling authors can do, one woman said a friend of hers keeps a visual journal while she works on a novel--pictures of characters and places, along with graphs and timelines and everything else.
As long as something like this doesn't distract you from the writing itself, I think it's a great idea. LOTS of fun to be had there, right?
