    Both of those characters are defined by their "weakness" (Crooks due his race and injury, Curley's Wife due to her gender). This is a main aspect of both of their characters and leads to lots of resentment you may want to include in the diary entry - i.e. what they're bitter about today and why. If you're really stuck, try to explain the narrative from their perspective (i.e. what did Crooks feel when Lennie entered his room? Why? What about after Curley's Wife came in and threatened him?).

    In terms of language features, you might try to write the diary entries in their dialect. Also bear in mind how Crooks is very cynical and Curley's Wife is more naive, so your tone might want to reflect that. Finally, while Crooks is fairly educated, Curley's Wife isn't so much (think about how she calls Lennie a "dum-dum") so it might be more appropriate if you *didn't* use lots of fancy language features such as metaphors.

    While I'm reluctant to do your homework for you, I hope this helped

    Good luck!
