My lovely 48 followers welcome. This isn't a typical post. It's an idea and I want/need opinions.
I kinda want to write a book. Well, like a journal-y type of book. And I've tried making one from my experiences in Colorado but it has proved to be quite difficult. And it gets even harder, the longer ago it was. If that makes sense. So what I kinda want to do is get a job (probably going to just go back to BK so I don't have to deal with filling out apps and going to interviews and such just to get rejected) and save up enough money to buy several journals and a train ticket to Denver (or maybe Seattle or other city that seems cool) and go there and live homelessly again for like say a couple months and then I would come back and attempt to get the story published. I may see if a couple people I know what to go with me and do this or whatever. Not sure yet though. When I went to Colorado, my cousin and his/my friend were there. They picked me up from the train station. And friend's long-lost brother lived with them. So all 4 of us were living in an RV in abandoned parking lots (or Wal-Mart parking lots). I want to do something similar again. And I want to write a book about it. If I get set to the loony bin again, I'll write about that too. So I guess my plan would be more for next spring/summer to leave to where ever.
So does this sound like a good idea to anyone? Or are you all thinking that I'm completely insane? Give me your opinions. Anon if you wish. Just don't be too mean. I mean currently it is only a half-assed plan. I realize that but I don't want to tell you all everything right now and some things I'm not sure about. Like yeah, I know "What am I going to do about food, shelter, water, clothes, ect?" and all those fun questions need to be answered. I just don't want to have to waste a bunch of time making crazy ass plans for something that won't ever happen. I mean this idea could evolve into something else. Like me recording everything with a camera like what the one guy (don't remember his name) did on MTV where he followed around a rapper and a homeless person and whatever to see what their lives are like. But I mean journals are the current plan. And since I have an ED it would kind of add depth or whatever to it. I've been told by like 3 people that I should write a book but I just can't seem to because I have other things in my life that are more important but if I go out to where ever and my goal is to write a book, a book will end up written. I would journal at least once everyday. I would have to figure out a budget. Like I take 10 notebooks and have X amount of $ for more notebooks. And I would have $XX for food each week/month and $XX for clothes,shoes,shampoo,ect,ect and $X for transportations and all of that. There's a lot that would need figured out, but I'm wanting to know if this is an idea that I should pursue. Do any of you think I can/should do it? Or should I say forget it. You can ask any questions about anything that you want. Anything about the time I spent out in Colorado the first time or anything about what I plan to do. Suggestions are also welcome. Please please please please tell me yay or nay or what you think or what ever.
