I Continue To Dig Around Through My Old, Wooden Chest…

…And Find Notes

…And…

Notes

…And…

…Hmm…

…OH YEAH…

NOTES!

Guess I Really Did Take The Statement To Heart When They Said…

When In Doubt, Or When You’re Certain, WRITE IT DOWN!

So…

…Well…

…I Did.

A LOT Of It.

I Even Found Two Small “STAR TREK LOG BOOKS” That Were Set-Up Like A Diary Would Be.

THE CAPTAIN’S LOG BOOK

…And…

THE SHIP’S LOG BOOK

…Both Nicely Bound Books…

…Loaded With Blank Pages.

Except…

…Mine Aren’t Blank Anymore.

They’re Filled With Notes About Life Events That I Thought Would Make For Interesting Scenes In Books, Plays, And/Or Screenplays.

It’s Crazy.

They’re Over 100-Pages Apiece…

…And They’re Filled With Hand-Written Notes.

Notes About People.

Notes About Places.

Notes About Situations.

Notes About Event-Sequences.

Notes Notes NOTES!!!

Good God, My Peeps.

I Knew I’d Written A Lot…

…But Some Of These I Still Don’t Remember Ever Writing.

The “STAR TREK LOG BOOKS” Are Both Filled With Info About Life Experiences During My NAVY DAYS!

O.M.F.G.

I Don’t Know If This Is A “JACKPOT” Type Situation…

…But It Feels That Way.

I’m So Happy I Took The Time To Write So Much Down…

…I Just Wish I Could Have Made It More Flowing And/Or Cohesive.

Some Are.

Some Are Just…

…Sheesh…

Scattered AND Scatterbrained?

Yeah.

Scattered AND Scatterbrained.

Those Terms Work Well Enough.

I Guess Step One Will Be Going Through All Of This Stuff…

…Page By Page…

…And Organizing It Based On Content.

I Know The Writing Process Is Long And Drawn-Out At Times…

…As I’ve Been A Budding Writer…

…Off And On…

…Since My First Short-Story…

…In, Or Around, 1985.

It Was About A Tsunami.

That’s All I Really Remember.

That AND It Had Multiple Pages.

It Wasn’t Good.

Hey, Cut Me Some Slack!

Sheesh.

ANYWAY…

…The Notes I’m Looking Over Go All The Way Back To 1996…

…And Come Forward To The New Notes I’ve Taken As Of Today.

Guess I Was Planning For A Career That Never Happened.

Maybe NOW Is The Time, Eh?!

MAYBE!!!

One response to “I Continue To Dig Around Through My Old, Wooden Chest…

  1. Brad, I love finding old stuff like that. It sounds to me like you’re heading back in the direction of doing some new writing. Go for it, man. Thing is, you never know what’s going to come out until you start. And what have you got to lose?
    Cool stuff, man.
