Post character diary entries here:

Thanks for the diary entries. I wish I had time to look at them and talk about them earlier - I think that helps keep them relevant. In hind sight, it may have been interesting to start a diary from the point of a charcter at the start of the book and follow it through to the end - maybe next time. ~Mrs. J.
