Has it made me feel better? I feel lucky that I can comment on my past thoughts - comments that I'll probably enjoy reading and commenting on again in another years, if I'm around that long. Because of this, I see this as an autobiography and a biography at the same time since I've changed so much - yet stayed the same. To borrow a quote from Bob Dylan: Since I don't want this to be incredibly boring, I didn't start with my diary entries even though they come first chronologically.

That starts out pretty normal and mundane as a 10 year old would write, but things do change quickly. I put these entries at the end as a "bonus" section and that is still an active journal to which I'll keep adding over the years. But reading through that, it was really clear to me how I was a [somewhat] normal 10 year old - albeit one that competed nationally in gymnastics and wrote almost daily in a diary - and through some unique events ended up as I am today: I mean, who would even do a project like this anyway??!!? I had trouble deciding how many question marks and exclamation marks to put in that and in what order.

The first 4 chapters contain my non-diary books in chronological order. Each book of poetry and short stories is a collection that I wrote from age 16 up through last Friday. I've found with poetry and music and art that what one man thinks is terrible another will find beauty within. So I included every poem and story I wrote; there is no filter for perceived quality.

Since I pretty much started a new book as soon as I finished the old, there was no transition or new approach as I moved to a new one, just a continuation of steady change. A new book was a physical transition, not logical or conceptual. Not like a new album or collection that usually has a period of reflection between them along with a cycle of feedback.

In fact, I never had any kind of feedback throughout the years. This is both a positive and a negative for the developing writer, but something I see more as a positive since it spawns a purer sense of the unaffected "me" in the writings as time goes by - and that is the point, isn't it?

I am so paranoid of losing my stuff books, poems, songs, drawings that I'm constantly backing things up and posting them anonymously online so they'll be backed up by internet servers and have a better chance of surviving a disaster. So this is more of that protectionism at play. But maybe someone will also agree with me on the quality of the work, which I think is very high in some instances as you get a little deeper in.

There is text leading many entries - comments written as I was compiling this, not from the time the pieces were written. I couldn't help providing some commentary and context for myself I will surely forget one day or anyone reading this. So bear with me through the first couple pages as they are very rudimentary poems I wrote as I was just beginning, and try to make it at least 10 or so pages into the good stuff.

Both sides might look the same, but the back is where the real, unencumbered action takes place. Going back even further in time, we discover mentions of notes jotted down on blotting paper, which would have afforded many of the same delights.
