Some memories you want to remember, and some things, you just want to forget.

For the latter, there are journals. Keeping a character journal is a good way to keep track of character story as well as give a more indepth look at how your character looks at a given situation. You may think of it as a waste of time, but it helps to get into character. If you don't think of it as a waste of time, then, well, the incentive of reward might just be icing on the cake.

You can write your journal anywhere, in a terminal, a notebook, or, if you're a robot, a log data file. This journal, typically, can only be read ICly by you, and if there for the OOC enlightenment and joy of others. Keeping a journal is a great way to open yourself up to interesting plot hooks, as many Adventure Hosts and Staff will be reading Character Journals (and rewarding particularly good ones with caps, items, or, in a rare occasion, even a Base Level.)

All journals should:
  • Fit the theme of the Character writing them.
  • Be written in the 'tone' of the character
  • Be interesting to read.
  • Follow or mention recent events
  • Reflect changes in a character over time

Your character may not be able to read or write, but, they may be able to attribute memories to drawings, objects, and tell stories about them; you can write those here as well.
As far as dated entries go, most don't know the date of the year, and those that do know, are generally Robots or Stable Ponies.
((I may update this topic if someone can tell me what year it should be!))

Following these steps and doing it consistently will net positive rewards, and grant deeper insight to a character to be exploited by those wanting to host and Adventure with said character. The best journal entry every week will be nominated by players and brought to my attention; and for that, you will get a personal reward from Administration.
