I swear I'm not making this up...

I found this memo I typed to myself among the stories and poems from my "early years".


Lakeland Library Cooperative was where my mom worked and was the site of my first job. I pulled books to be sent through inter-library loan. Apparently, on April 10, my mind was not on my job. I'm sure I wasn't day-dreaming any OTHER times on this job. Er...













I don't remember writing this poem, but I must have. It's funny that 20 years ago I thought that I needed to write every day even if I didn't feel like it. One of the books I'm reading advocates that as the only way to become a writer.

Um, ok, you probably want to know about "Casey Taylor". I don't remember where "Casey" came from except that my friends, Karen and Beth, and I had pseudonyms. "Taylor", of course, was because I was going to marry this man.

Ha, Ha....not about the writing everyday...I love your pen name and I love even more that it was b/c you thought you were going to marry John Taylor (he was always the cute one!)--Have a good day...Casey!

Heck, yeah, I was going to marry him! Beth liked Simon and Karen liked Nick... so it was just going to be so great when we all got married.
