   Ignorant of what happens next: shapeless, plotless unlike
    novels or memoirs
   A kind of workbook
   The only literary form that imitates the way we experience
    being human. It does not look for patterns nor try to make
    sense of life. (William Boyd)
   Never completed : always in progress ( Virginia Woolf)

   Undoubtedly a comfort. A turning away…a place for asides(
    Alan Bennett)
   The inconsequential minutiae of life ( Richard Eyre)
   A single voice
   A jotting which does not weigh words but flings them down
    pell-mell……..(Dorisann Goodchild)
