Sample Character Diary Entry
Chapter 1
Today’s Date
Dear Journal,
Today was a glorious day. I don’t know why, but I had a feeling that
something great was going to happen. I took a stroll down to see the
beautiful flowers outside of the Cathedral of Notre Dame. Seeing the
bright colors of the flowers invigorated my spirit. I could almost hear
the chirping of the birds on a sunny spring day. I met a woman named
Anabel. She looked about my age. She was working with the flowers.
She kindly gave me some branches to decorate my buggy. I hope I
didn’t make her angry when I took a sprig of holly for my lapel…….
Your friend,
Armand
