The Journal

Laura whittles time away writing in her journal,  writing blatant lies mostly, to make her life appear more interesting to her imagined offspring, until each of the scenarios she pens start to unfold in life.

What are Laura's "concoctions"? how does she get out of the quagmire on the page?

I think she paints herself into a corner, creates a situation so impossible that she has no more imagination to think of a way out of it - like killers after her or something.

There's a book by Ursula LaGuin (The Lathe of Heaven) that follows this concept somehow, about someone whose dreams start to alter reality.
