How about, instead of keeping a stright journal you make it a scrapbook. Write like you normaly do, and also include the letters and e-mail, cartoon clips, quotes from others etc?

This technique would allow you to contribute a great deal to your Journal regardless of what mood you are in. Any ole journal, some scissors and scotch tape and your set.
