When putting their personal thoughts and feelings into a journal, many folks still cling to the tried and true method of writing with pen or pencil on paper. Others, like myself, prefer to type on the computer. Younger writers or those of us who have embraced the computer age, use online programs like Life Journal or Diary networks where you can elect to keep your writing private or share it with other diarists. I have recently downloaded Penzu onto my cellphone and have recorded my various ideas, feelings, and happenings. Penzu is free. The recording is almost immediately converted into text ready to print. Be sure to reread the text to be certain the computer understands exactly what you say.
