Creative Writing Tips Wanted!

I'm thinking of rewriting some of my old diaries. My old writing style is close to the dry, matter-of-fact, record-style. So before my memory deteriorates, I wanna spice things up a bit, or even change of some events to make them more compelling. I'm settled for first person POV. I might insert some poems, dramatic monologue, dialogues, letters, etc., as I see fit. I also want to use a lot of flashbacks and imagery. I want to focus heavily on depicting emotions.
Any ideas are welcome. If possible, you could also suggest any sites/books that I could read.
