How do you even start keeping a comic diary? Jane Porter is a picture book author and illustrator. She’s been keeping a comic diary for five years and it’s full of river cleanups and river swims, and all the funny things that happen every day. Read Jane's guide to starting a comic diary and keeping it going. Jane says:
Your diary doesn’t have to be funny of course – it’s a good way of processing sad or worrying things too. Don’t forget to add the date. Sometimes it’s nice to add notes about things you smell, hear or taste too, and how you feel – it’s all good material for future story writing.
