how much time
I write on wide rule paper and usually write two to three pages a day. I usually write around a 1000 pages a year. My usual average a month is 65 pages sometimes more. I write throughout the day since I am retired. When I was working I wrote during my lunch break and when I got home from work. I have been writing in diary form since 1968. When I was younger I wrote a lot more. I write in diary form not only in a paper diary but I write a blog in LiveJournal and Diaryland. Writing for me is not difficult since I have a lot to write about. The important thing when writing is not to worry about thinking you have to write something profound. Just write down what ever comes to your head. Write about the day to day events in your life. The most important thing is to write no matter how you feel. The more you write you come to HEAR your own Inner Voice and not the false voice-come to Self Knowledge-enlightenment/then your goal is to be true to your own Self Knowledge no matter the personal cost/suffering.

I tend to follow what you find below on writing in my diary.

Remember there is no one in the whole world like you. You are special and what you write is special. Seek beauty in all that you do.
