Mortified.

Has anyone else on my friends list seen or read Mortified?

I'm reading it now. My two main reactions appear to be 1.) The realization that maybe I wasn't as big of a spaz as I thought I was when I was a tween/teen, and 2.) A growing urge to start posting retro journal entries here.

The retro idea has certainly occurred to me before. I used to be a prolific journal writer, and I still have all of my old paper journals. What do you think? Would you guys be interested in reading random snippets of my life from ten, fifteen, maybe twenty years ago?

haven't read...
...but I say bring on the crazy randomness.
Do you have (access to) a scanner? Might be easier than typing stuff out, and your handwriting is astoundingly legible (I'd not be able to do the same thing, for example.)

Re: haven't read...
A scanner? Yes. A scanner that's compatible with my OS? Sadly, no.

Oh man, that sounds really good.

I still have all of my old paper journals too, though they're in storage at my mom's place. I was thinking of posting some, but I'm afraid to look as I'm pretty sure they would seem like writings of a paranoid schizophrenia. In a deeply uninteresting way.

I liked Mortified, but I expected more. When I read it (I own a copy), I thought - "Man, I should submit my old journal entries!"


I would LOVE to read your old stuff. If you do it, I'll do it. Maybe we can start a separate LJ community for it.

I am ready to share my embarrassing teenage writing with the world.

Do you have a favorite story from the book?

I think you can find videos of some of the authors reading their writing to a live audience. That's the best!
