comment Fictional diary for a novel
I agree with @Strix's comment on the question with one exception; Flowers for Algernon. Thanks for reminding me about that classic, @neilfein, definitely gotta reread that sometime soon.

comment Where is the best place to “twist” a series?
I agree completely with this. Hint at it fairly heavily throughout the first book without potentially giving it away; when it becomes clear in the second book, a reader (or at least a reader like me) will be totally pumped and wanting to read more.

If the last sentence was rephrased as a question, would it be acceptable?

comment What to do about readers reading into things?
"The idea that the intent of the author doesn't matter personally bothers me." +1 for that. None of the people in my life seem to think author's intent is worth a damn.

Yeah, that's a better way to phrase it. I'll edit my answer to make it more clear.

comment How do you track random thoughts and ideas?
I agree, this isn't really a duplicate. This is a more practical question (i.e. "how can I physically record these ideas") whereas the aforementioned question is more abstract (i.e. "what can I do with ideas to make them into stories").
