Endy--Ill look for the book that youve posted. Youre right, maybe a thread on the subject would be better for all of us. I kinda blew my stack at spendi, and hes not the problem. I see that the mods had wisely removed my tantrum. I hope I didnt scare the kids.

Meanwhile, Im onto about 120 pages of the journal and Its in 12 point Senatorial, single spaced. Fortunately, should I decide to review any sections (which Ive done) I can jump back and forth into the little modules of Word. Ive noticed that there is one really glaring glue of continuity that Id really never given much thought , until I started to write this way.

Well I hope the mods didn't remove the tantrum on my account. I love watching a good tantrum. I don't bother until they start shooting real lead. Even that is a bit distant if you don't get hit.

When Philip Larkin was dying he said that his task now was not to frighten the nurses. He's my kind of poet.

Hey, farmerman

I know I didn't want to talk about the drink the other day- but thanks, for the help. It was just good to hear from someone right then.

That tip you gave me, btw

A journal of one's life is a fabulous idea. Most people who start them usually maintain them for about a week, and sporadicly for another month thereafter.


Hey, that sounds about how my New Year's resolution to exercise went. Coincidence? I think not!

But yeah, I think journaling is a great idea, especially if you want to be a writer. It gives you practice writing, and helps you better remember significant events in your life.

Ive since begun another journal in which Im outlining some of our boat trips from a geological sense. Its sort of like seeing a country's ass when you travel by train. (Trains dont present the best sides of the works of civilization) Neither does a craft have presented to it the awesome side of a country. The coastal areas are all those zones that have been torn from an entirely different landmass , so the clues re: "our planets zipper" is best seen by sea.
