Gathering up my Commonplace Book

Posted by on Thursday, April 5th, 2018

At some point, as a strange child who decided to write the Great American Novel (whatever the hell that even means), I stumbled across the concept of a “Commonplace Book.”  And I started sort of keeping one.  The things I would include in my Commonplace book pop up in my journals, in notebooks, on slips of paper and via highlighted sections in text books.  Many people encourage hand-written Commonplace Books for a myriad of excellent reasons.  But my journals have no concordance, and that is unlikely to change.  So it’s time to start building a digital one here. Hence the new category and the browsing of countless pages of my own messy scrawl.  And now to begin . . .

    Oh, so that’s what my book of quotations is! Wherever it might be.

    I seem to show up not long after you decide to post, and I’m glad to see you are. Nice to see you again.

    Won’t leave my website, yet. Still trying to figure out what I want to do, after 10 years.
