Every story has to start somewhere. I’ve been journaling off and on during most of my life. Thing is, I’ve started this story twice, and both times they have been wiped clean (the first I call theft, the second I call the “blue screen of death”*). Both times, I chose to go with things in a chronological fashion, but I found that to become rather staid. So now, on my third attempt at writing something that is part autobiographical, I am going to use this tool to save that which can’t be saved otherwise. Or won’t, because I’m too damn lazy to use a thumb drive or an external hard drive.
