Several years ago, a friend and I were sitting in a staff meeting trying desperatedly to pay attention to the topic du jour when we started scribbling notes to each other on a piece of paper. The dialogue went something like this:
me: I need a new journal. Where did you get yours?and things kinda deteriorated from there as far as paying attention to the meeting was concerned....
her: Barnes and Nobles has nice ones. What you gonna use it for? Start the novel yet?
me: Novel: ha... I haven't started it, the opening line is stuck in my head tho. I suppose I can get the new journal and put it there.
her: What will you call this journal
(I name all my journals... shut up, you do too, quit frontin')
me: for some reason, the word synergistic keeps popping into my head.
I got the new journal and soon filled it with all sorts of junk that was stuck in my head. However, the word synergistic wouldn't come out. Oh yeah, the first draft of the novel is on my flash drive, two different hard drives and in a really nice binder, purchased at Barnes and Nobles.
