Woster, Christy. “A Bad Boy’S Diary The Inspiration For L. M. Montgomery’S Lifetime Of Journaling”. The Shining Scroll (2010): 9-13. Print.
L. M. Montgomery’s journal begins on September 21, 1889. She writes: I am going to begin a new kind of diary. I have kept one of a kind for years-ever since I was a tot of nine. But I burned it to-day. It was so silly I was ashamed of it. And it was also very dull. I wrote in it religiously every day and told what kind of weather it was. Most of the time I hadn’t much else to tell but I would have thought it a kind of crime not to write daily in it -- nearly as bad as not saying my prayers or washing my face., Source type: Print(0)
