Mini-Quiz: Improve Skills with a Journal

by Ron Kurtus (revised 25 April 2003)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. How is a journal different than a diary?

A journal may include more material, such as observations

A diary is written in a real small book

You can't include a travel log

2. Why should you rewrite your journal with a word processor?

To possibly reuse the material

To practice typing

To avoid using a ball point pen

3. Should you show others your journal?

Yes, because they may purchase your memoirs

No, because your spelling may be incorrect

No, because it may include very personal thoughts

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Writing. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.
