Real writers are naturally suspicious of weblogs. Max writes:

‘Just found a copy of The Importance of Being Earnest. The play includes the following:

ALGERNON: Do you really keep a diary? I’d give anything to look at it. May I?

CECILY: Oh no. [Puts her hand over it.] You see, it is simply a very young girl’s record of her own thoughts and impressions, and consequently meant for publication.

Thought of you. For some reason.’
