    I have found this expression. Could some body tell me how would a japanese native read it? It seems an aglomeration of chinese words...!

    articles about the feeling of being a writer of diaries?

    I do not know chinese.

    I have't checked what onikkiyaku is but it has something to do with journal (nikki) keeping.
