Eric doesn't seem like a kid that would have kept a journal until the planning of the shooting. Just something I think though.

IIRC he had his little website up where he doxed people and made threats to Brooks Brown and others. After the van break-in I think he shut it down, though I'm not sure.

If Eric had thoughts "separate from Dylan" he'd have written about them long before he did. Eric was a follower, he couldn't think of this stuff by himself. 

While I agree that Eric couldn't think of this on his own, I have to disagree that Dylan was the one who came up with the idea to bomb the school. Eric got the idea to use bombs from the Oklahoma City Bombing.

Yes, Eric was very type A! Dylan pitched and Eric ran with it. Being low key, I doubt Dylan would have ever done anything on his own, it was all pure fantasy for him. Eric geared him up to see it through and upped the ante with the bombs and gaining intelligence on the school etc. I think Eric really enjoyed all of it, like one big top secret mission.

I agree wholeheartedly. Eric had grown up playing games about being in war and taking out the enemy. He planned NBK out like he had with the all Rebel Missions. In his journal he even says that everything about NBK seemed like a movie to him. Because that is the way he planned it. In my opinion he was playing a roll he designed for himself.

Still not really a journal IMO. Just a rant filled Geocities website that he made to be "cool".

Dylan didn't think of bombing the school, that was totally on Eric (who didn't get the idea himself, he got it from the Timothy McVeigh like you already stated).

Dylan did probably think of the shooting part though and that's what they actually did. Dylan seemed to be enjoying himself more than Eric during the shooting too who probably just wanted to do a bombing and kill a few people with guns. I get the impression after the library Eric was pretty disappointed with what actually happened. His bloodlust was quenched and he was left feeling empty. Dylan probably didn't care either way, he got what he wanted.

I agree that it probably happened gradually... most likely Dylans idea and Eric added to it to spurn it into what it turned out as... Eric always liked the idea of killing someone , Dylan fuelled it , they became a violently focused duo.
