So lately I have been going back through journal entries from the past few years and I found one that I have to share. Simply because it sums up my brain so very well...Here ya go:
"June 13, 2012 -
So tonight I decided to look up how to write a novel. LOL I have this longing to write but I honestly don't know where to begin. I found a page that had some very good ideas about how to form ideas, build your story, build your characters, and figure out a storyline before you even start the rough draft. LOL I think I am going to follow that and see how it works. And of course I wrote down my tagline and then got distracted. I was just sitting here posting on Facebook and looking at the things scattered across my bed: pills bottles, and toothpaste. The toothpaste bottle says Fluoride Toothpaste and it brought back this memory from elementary school where they would make us kids take fluoride. I don't know if they still do that in school but all I remember is that the flavor was usually bubblegum and it was gross! I hope schools don't put kids through that cruel & unusual punishment! LOL

Couple things...first I know how to start writing now. You just start writing...that's why my journal entries are now 9 pages long instead of 1 1/2.
Two: I have absolutely NO clue why there was toothpaste on my bed, or how I jumped from one topic to the other...Was there something on Facebook that triggered it? I guess I'll never know. LOL
If you journal/blog, do you ever go back and re-read what you wrote? If not, you should - because it's usually hilarious!
