In which I unearth ancient history:

With settlement on my house fast approaching, this weekend was officially classified as “crunch time” for packing. Naturally I waited until the last minute to pack up my office, because reasons. Anyway, I unearthed two ancient artifacts.

The first:

I wrote most of ALT’s first draft by hand on legal tablets during lulls at my old law firm job. Then I’d type it all into Word at night. I don’t write like that much anymore–output from my brain to the keyboard is simply faster–but it’s a methodĀ that I’d recommend any writer do at least once. I’ve got several other tablets like this one, all filled with various scribblings, some ALT, some not. I posted this on Facebook yesterday and my friend Nikki told me they’d be worth a fortune some day. I doubt it, but hey, you never know. I just like to hang on to things like this because I like to look back and see how far I’ve come.

Oh, here’s that second artifact. This is my old student ID, circa 2004:

Yes, my first name is Robert. Don't tell anyone.

The Keisling Scowl isn’t a new thing, folks. I’ve been perfecting it since I was an infant.

That’s all for now. I’ll try to post again before the move. Hope you all had a great weekend.


P.S. Call your mother and wish her a happy Mothers Day.
