第一，注意日记的格式：一般是左上角写当天的日期，右上角写当天的天气情况(cloudy/ clear/ windy/ rainy/ fine/ snowy…)。日期通常采用两种写法：一种是按“月、日、年”顺序;另一种是按“日、月、年”的顺序。注意要在年份之前有一个逗号，而且月份通常可用缩写词(如：Jan., Feb., Mar.等)。如果需要写星期，可将其写在日期的前面或后面。如：Monday, May15th, 2008或May15th, 2008, Monday
第三，日记一般按事情发生的先后顺序记述，所以常需借助一些表示先后顺序的词语，如at first, then, later on, afterwards, finally, at last等。一定要注意句与句、段与段之间的连接和过渡，适当使用一些过渡词语使其连接紧凑、过渡自然。
