Day in the Life: My Sketchbook, Round Six

Today we move forward to 2005, specifically the last week of April and the first week of May. How do I know this? Because I was in the midst of an experiment, writing and drawing a short entry every day of the week and haphazardly filling a giant sketch book someone had given me as a gift. These pages were near the end but they are fascinating to me because of the entries. I did not know it at the time but this was one crazy, significant string of days. Some of the issues covered were my grandmother's 100th birthday, taking my daughter to get her passport application for her first trip abroad (Peru) and a literary agent requesting the full manuscript for my first novel. You may not believe me but I picked this page at random out of the big book because I liked the way it looked. It wasn't until after I scanned the page that I read it (to make sure there was nothing unseemly mentioned) and discovered all the amazing entries. Amazing for me. You? Probably not so much. But let me know if you were moved...

It hurts my little brain.

I guess that is some form of movement. I can't expect much more than that since it's free. The page and the pain. (Hey... that is a nice title for something!)

Oh c'mon, Paige, you aren't trying hard enough! As for the manuscript? It might as well have been illegible. Alas, it was turned down and still sits on my shelf. Onward and upward!
