Best Intentions

This was the first page of a journal, one of the ones that looks like a normal book but the inside pages are blank:

Sunday October 21, 2000 2001

I bought this book yesterday with the intention of filling it with stories. my stories, stories of friends and people I have met, and the stories I tell myself to make the days go by. it will be my book. I'd love "to be a writer," and to write a book. maybe i will pupl publish this - or maybe this will be it...

Here goes nuthin!!

This was the only entry in the journal.

Good intentions get you only so far. Writing is a lot harder than it looks.

This is one of the saddest things I have ever read.

Agreed, sad and sweet. So much hope there, nothing to show for it.

Here's hoping he or she just lost the book and started a new one.

I have done this with every blank book I've ever owned. Too much pressure.

How many journals languish like this one? Since many of mine have, I think it's very funny. It reminds me of the children's book, "Mr. Putter Writes a Book," by Cynthia Rylant--a lovely, kind, and humorous look at writer's block through that sweetest of old men, Mr. Putter.
