The noggin of this blog is a 22-year old girl called Leaf Leaf. She started writing journals and using an email address at the age of 6. One of her childhood dreams was to master the art of touch-typing, but she ended up learning piano and violin instead.
The Diary of Noggin began the summer she turned 16, that self-conscious period of life when she realised how bad her writing was and how good she wanted it to be. Off she went, not knowing what was to come: posts on teenage angst, music, travel journaling, photography, drawings, university, poetry. Some serious, some silly.
Years later the writing has undergone a journey of its own. It’s still rough, imperfect and terribly indulgent. But at least it’s alive and flowing out the pen – and Noggin is miles better at touch-typing too.
