And I see it going somewhere. Even if I never get it published, even if my family thinks its too vulgar or harsh or that it sucks, finishing it will be a triumph in itself.
As for the dedication page, I think it will read something like this:
This book is dedicated to Dean Boskovich. Thank you for listening.12 months ago
It seems like I pay attention to only a small number of them. There are a few repeat offenders; goals that really connect to each other or rely on another separate goal to be completed. But still: I should be opening my eyes more.
As far as the writing’s going, well… it’s ‘going’ at a slow pace. I am suddenly getting little glitches in my mind, lines that would go perfectly in my book. So I write them down as soon as I can, and then I stuff all these scraps of paper with scrambles of words into a messy notebook. These ‘lines’ just come to me from various inspirations I hear; I alter them so they’re still mine. I tweak them so that I still feel creative.
If there’s one thing I don’t support, it’s plaigerism. Even if an idea is so good I wish I’d thought of it first, I can’t take that away from someone. “Those are not my words” fits well here.
Okay, well, I am pretty dang tired, and I am in need of a shower. Deja vu of yesterday?

It’s frustrating how I can come up with so many great ideas. Often at the most random times, I’ll think of a great tidbit or line that would fit well into a story.
The trouble is, putting the pieces together. My notebooks are a mess. 14 months ago
I actually wrote a rough draft of the page of my book where the twist happens.
It needs a lot of work, still, because it was Rough Draft No. 1.
But isn’t it a good sign that when I read it, I got chills?
Maybe. Right? Yes? No?
