    Yes, it still runs. I timed my gameplay to around 8:00 while unpaused and the achievement didn't pop as I started and stopped watching a guide.

    Goots 88@Limit Fox - it's been a while since I won this achievement, but I am almost positive I paused after every couple of letters and it still unlocked.

    If you're not speed-running, just playing through and have found most of the journal entries and want to get the ones you're missing and get this achievement ahead of Speedrunner (which might take some practice anyway), here's a list of all 24 locations (last one not needed for this achievement, but you might as well get it out of the way now, along with its corresponding achievement). The list is not mine, I took it from http://www.usgamer.net/articles/gone-home-console-edition-al...

    Also, this video might be useful, although it uses some shortcuts like entering the code for the locker without showing how to find it. Credit for the video goes to YouTube user/uploader VidGamiacUnlocked

    GamePadZebbyDoes the timer still tick when paused?

    Runner eGirlI don't remember, but the timer is not relevant for this achievement, you can take as long as you want to find these

    I know it's kinda reinventing the wheel, but I made a 100%-in-a-single video for those that prefer that sort of thing. Maka's solution is perfectly fine, but for those that wanna follow along with a single video and 1k the game, here's my version below. You'll get this achievement while going for Speedreader, which requires you to get all 23 journals as well as the secret one and finish the game in under 10 minutes.

    00:07 - This old house, Nesting Instinct, Intuitive, Wet Blanket
    04:32 - Homerunner
    06:05- Speedreader and Meow meow meow
