If you're interested in having a private, online journal (because let's face it, it's faster to type than to write longhand...although longhand is so much more romantic, isn't it???) check out this site: 750 Words. It's pretty cool. It's free. It tracks a bunch of stats about your writing (algorithms are neat!) and it's a good place to empty your head in a timely fashion. I always *mean* to pull out my actual journal, but rarely do.
Check it out!
