The longest journal starts with a single word

Welcome to my journal. I hope for this to become a place for me to record, reason, and reflect on thoughts and ideas for an ongoing project of mine. I'd like to have a go at describing, divulging and developing these ideas somewhat to see if it helps build them into a working project, or at least help maintain some forward momentum.
I've always admired great scientists and inventors for the doggedness with which they maintain their notes, but it's something I've never been able to do for very long. I've kept a small journal before for this project, and it did help, but eventually petered out. It took the form of a cross between rambling, lists of ideas, and conversations with myself. This sounds to me like perfect blog material so I thought I'd give it a go.
I'm not sure how public this really needs to be, or if I need any external feedback at all. I think just being able to talk things through with myself will be invaluable, and moments of re-reading my words may give me that external perspective. If people do read this, and are interested, then maybe that will help spur me on to put more work into the project and ultimately fulfil my ambition.
I'll talk about the nature of the project in my next post.
Wish me luck.
