At this point I've decided to try to create these videos in roughly chronological order. The moleskines I first uploaded are recent. This journal was created after the Maine vacation journal, started while I was in transition to Maine, moving my belongings to my new place after I spent several very difficult months with my life in complete transition. This is essentially my last month in Mass in 2001, probably February March.
I think that while the art in this journal is not my best, it has the most feeling.
Technically-wise this is one of my first multiple signature books and is mechanically terrible. It'sbound with a double thickness of dental floss, on a covered cardboard that's covered with a metallic gift bag. The cord is a heavy cotton cord stripped from a pair of shorts. The paper is canson mein tents in bone or a similar color. I used mainly ink, watercolor crayons and collage. Shortly after making this journal I learned to make structurally sound books
I've finished a few novels and u know they are terrible. They will forever languish in my reject pile. While I'm just now learning to be a writer, I'm a lifelong reader, and I can tell you a number of things that tear me out of an otherwise great story and break my heart. Some of this stuff are things beta reader and early stage editing will or should catch. Head hopping, overwhelming characters with a ton of personality and somehow we know their thoughts when the book is supposed to be first person POV, weird grammatical phrasing that sounds fine or acceptable.in a first draft but is garbage in the finished piece, repetative phrases and thoughts and words. If you are a #lesfic author and you need a honest beta reader, hit me up, I'll read your work, send you a doc with notes and thoughts, and be happy to do it. There is no reason to not have a beta reader, there are tons of readers in the community who would.be happy to do it.
