Similar to the weblog, the Japanese have a concept called Zuihitsu, which means something close to "following the brush". It is a reference to writing one's mind as thoughts come to it, perhaps best described in English as "miscellany" or "stream of thought" writing.

A number of writers instinctively or actively use a technique which has some features overlapping those of Zuihitsu.
