Hi. I searched long and didnt find anything. Is it possible to make a Journal or Diary mod? Like you buy an Empty book and write it by your self? I found one Journal mod were you have an editor for making books, but thats not what i want. i want to write it ingame. Ok i see its quite difficult to insert pictures. But just writing should be possible. Or not?

I've been looking for something similar as well. I'm not going to say that it's possible 100%, but it might be.

Yeah it kinda was in Oblivion. It was kinda buggy though. But it should be possible.

This mod is as close as it gets to a custom notebook/journal. It provides a software (seperate from skyrim) for making an in-game journal. You can't write on it in-game but you can do an Alt-tab switch back and forth. I personally don't use the mod but I think you won't be able to see added notes until you quit skyrim and start it back up again. This isn't really that big of a deal if you don't mind a little extra work.
I could imagine after a long day of adventuring, you retire to an inn, close the game, write in your journal, start back skyrim again and there's your day's entry in the journal. Pretty fun I imagine, might start using it myself.
EDIT: Just read through your post carefully, I guess you were referring to this mod LOL. Well sorry, but honestly I feel like this isn't too bad of an idea.

I personally use this site to take notes with the Steam overlay (I try to make them short, since the site is kind of buggy with the overlay) and then copypaste the text with the CK into a personal journal (a regular book). Of course, it's not exactly what you want and it's similar to that other mod, but at least with that site I linked you can write while you play

I wish someone were able to do an oblivion ui mod. The whole "your entire character in his own personal journal" thing was amazing from an immersion and roleplaying standpoint. Skyrim,s shaded background, not so much. I wonder if someone could create a "skin" of sorts for skyui.

Well the Suggestions you made were exactly the ones i dont like. Its sooooo Immersion Breaking if i have to write it outside of the game.

A few years(?) back I had started a similar project then stopped, didn't really get too much far with it but I can try to take it back and see if I manage to do something decent, I suck at modding/scripting so no promises.

Would be really cool.

It's not exactly what you guys are asking for but I'll upload a video of a short example to see if it's close enough
