I love that I immediately started to merge words and visuals. The early journal entries are painfully boring to read. I had not learned to edit and organize my thoughts. It is lengthy and really really boring to re-read. I wrote it and I was bored. So, I am skipping a lot of it and just hitting the highlights.
Occasionally, at Interlochen Arts Camp, we were required to work overnight when changing from one play to another. There was a lot of sitting around waiting to be needed. I would write and clearly, I would run out of things to write and would just copy entire furniture ads. I have no idea why.
I went on to copy ads out of the yellow pages and timed how long I could hold my breath (26 seconds).
