About Diariste - Diary or Personal Journal

The term "diariste" is a Michèle Leleu neologism derived from English "Diary" (Personal Journal) and the old french "Diaire" (book of reason). It refers to the author of a diary.

A diary or personal journal is a support generally intended to be kept secret, as letter without a recipient, doomed to be never read. Its author, a diariste, writes daily:

  • his adventures:
    ordinary or extra-ordinary, keep a trace of your travels, your discoveries or events in your life.
  • his memories:
    like a biographer, recount your childhood memories.
  • his(her) joys:
    a wedding? a birth? a gift? or just a moment of happiness? There's no better time than now to tell what it feels like. Later relive the intensity and all the small details of an event that marked your life.
  • his sorrows:
    Like a therapy, write about what is hurting you or making you angry.
  • ses pensées :
    secured and private, your diary or personal journal is also your secret garden.
  • or even his(her) dreams...
