Whilst travelling, I kept a journal and I have since written one part of my travels up as a book: http://www.weaveoftheride.com. However, I am now writing the second book, and I am looking for new approaches to write up my journal. Before I read through the journal and augemented what I thought was interesting with my own memories. However, I am considering whehter it might be more productive to first have a structural 'idea' and then write what I can remember around that, using my journal to trigger my memories. Does anyone have any experience and advice for this lengthy process?
