Journal Entry 1 by wingdiscoveryloverwing from Wellington City, Wellington Province New Zealand on Saturday, March 01, 2008

This book has not been rated.

WingedMan's 'you are hosting a writing party' thread inspired me to start a book of the same description. And then Scoobs asked if we could do art as well, so its an arty writing book!

I will create something, and send it on to the next person, who will then create something based on what the previous person created.

There are no rules. Feel free to take as much space as you want. If you think you are going to take longer than a month year or so, please post in the thread and do a journal entry so we know it hasn't been lost! Feel free to add things by other people, it doesn't have to be original!! When you are done, pmail the next person for their address.

Any questions, pmail me :D

Thanks for participating!!

The order (as at 26/1/11) is as follows:

Me (DL) (NZ)
Carrie1 (US)
Cafekat (US)
CreativeMGE (US)
Scoobs-buddy (US)
WingedMan (US)
Scoobs-buddy
Non BC friend of WMan (okayed by me)

also if you could sign the front page then that would be awesome too! After all, you are one of the authors!

Wow! I made an entry on this book yesterday and it's disappeared???? Anyway, whatever made me sign up for this one? I'm feeling a little unworthy of this right now. I'll put my thinking cap on and hope my creative juices start to flow. Love the entries so far. Great idea, DL!

A couple of people have asked about this and so I figured when it gets back to me we can get a list of people who want to see what everyone else did and send it around again? Just an idea, if anyone else has a better one, feel free to do another entry or pmail me or something!

Thanks for letting me participate : )

Yes, that's right... this journal is back with me!! : D

It was such a lovely surprise to see it again!! I think I had made a comment that I would love to see what had happened in the interim after leaving my hands... and Scoobs and WM with DL's consent conspired to make that happen! You all are lovely, thank you so much : )


I love the new additions. There's a lot of heart in this journal, and a lot of soul : ) ... Thanks for sharing it with me - and thanks DL for letting it take the loooong route around! ; )

Per DL's instructions, I am to keep this here until she arrives in April.

I would love to see the journal as well. I believe the idea was to send it around again so we could take a look at the other entries, wasn't it? Thank you

I would like to see it again as well. In fact maybe, I'll get to see it next week. The bad weather kept me in SC this week but I plan to travel north next Wed. Call me, Creative!

Ummmmmm *gathering thoughts together* ok so Cafekat that would be awesome if you could see it next week, if not let me know and I'll sort something out.

It hasn't actually been around everyone yet, I can't remember why it got sent to MGE (not that I wasn't ok with it, because I obviously okayed it at some point!).

Carrie did you want to wait till it's finished its rounds or see it now? My plans were to grab it while I'm in DC for the con in a few months, and then take it with me cos there's a few other people I wanna give the opportunity to have a go, and then get it back on its way when I get home, or something (which will be the end of May/beginning of June. If anyone has any problems with that let me know and I'll work something out :-)

Sorry if none of this makes sense, it's been an awfully long week, and I am ridiculously tired, and in need of my own space!

I am fine with however you'd like to arrange it. Just saying I'd like to see it again at some point. Waiting until it's all finished is fine with me. Sorry to hear you're having a rough time....hopefully things will improve for you soon! Love you :D

Discoverylover showed this book to me yesterday while she's staying here for a few days and asked me to make some art. AAH! On the spot? Like, now? Or at least in the 36 hours you'll still be here? Oy, there's a challenge for someone who's no more than a creative-wannabe..

Anyway, got lucky and some inspiration tackled me and my hands were willing to create the image in my mind for a change. Fairly pleased with it, hope you like it. You know who was part of the inspiration. The awesomeness that is AFP :)

Signed and dated, if I ever become an artist you can put it on e-bay for lots of money :P

Handed the book back to discoverylover.

Apparently I put this book in storage while I was living in Scotland, but I got it back out last week and I may have cried a little seeing it again. I have such lovely memories of you all from my early twenties or so. I feel like I owe you all so much because I was really just trying to work out what kind of person I wanted to be then (which to be fair I'm still doing, but I feel much closer to who I want to be now than I did then) and you were all so supportive and made me feel like I was absolutely perfect however I wanted to be.

I'm curious how y'all are doing! What's new in your lives? In September last year I got a seriously cool job working as a library assistant and as of two days ago I'm enrolled to go back to university to do a postgraduate diploma in information studies (what you study to become a "proper" librarian!). I haven't announced it on fb yet because I'm waiting to see if I get accepted, but I'm pretty I will (thankfully universities want my money lol!)

If anyone is still reading and has any idea what I should do with this journal now, feel free to weigh in. I'm happy to send it around again if people want to see it, or put pictures online, or anything really (except destroy it!).

Love to you all,
DL x
