3 notebooks (and I’ve started a 4th)
Hello, welcome to my mind.
I hoard notebooks. Most of them have one or two pages filled, and then are abandoned in drawers.
Some may never get used at all.
But right now, we can leave these dozens of notebooks aside. I only want to focus on the three that actually got filled, and a fourth that I've started.
Ever since 2017, I've started writing all of my ideas down in notebooks. Since then, I've filled three notebooks and started a fourth with a total of 205 ideas. Most of them, I expect I'll never come back to. Some, I've started and may never finish. Some, I've actually written.
Mostly, I hope that these notebooks will become lost manuscripts. When I die, hoards of fans will show up at my doorstep and pay ludicrous amounts of money to peer into my mind.
But of course, that's just a fantasy. I may never be famous. I may never even be a published writer.
But it's nice to dream. It's nice to fall into that fantasy for a while.
But for now, those 3-and-counting notebooks will stay right where they are. In a drawer. To be thought of once and a while, but mostly, to be ignored.
