    The author. Just my interpretation of the journal part and finding your character within your story. I could be off but that's what I got from it.

    Word. Well, anymore commentary would be appreciated. Did you read my comments? Any thoughts? I may be wrong, but I have a sneaking suspicion that this subject matter will not get too many comments, so, lol, I'm trying to get as much as I can from you :)

    Maybe that way you are more open to character growth within the narrative.

    Oh, most certainly! Long before I read this article... I've known my whole life that I would write an autobiography.
