I was just finishing high school and entering college in 1988, when the Creator‘s Bill of Rights was drafted, and had already set my sights on building a career as a writer of comics. Discovering the Creator’s Bill of Rights – in an issue of ‘The Comics Journal,’ if I’m not mistaken – I accepted it as gospel.
For almost every novel I’ve written, I’ve read the daily newspaper of the time almost as if it were my current subscription. For ‘Two Moons,’ which was set in 1877, I think I read just about every day of the ‘Washington Evening Star’ for that year. For ‘Henry and Clara,’ I read the ‘Albany Evening Journal’ of the time.
In market research I did at Microsoft Corp. in the early 1990s, I estimated that the ‘Wall Street Journal’ took in about 75 cents per copy from subscribers, $1.25 at the newsstand and a whopping $5 per copy from ads. The ad revenue let them run a far bigger newsroom than subscribers were paying for.
I don’t journal that much, honestly.
I follow blogs, particularly all the main political ones – Guido Fawkes, Iain Dale, Coffee House, Paul Waugh, Iain Martin in the Wall Street Journal, and so on. And some American ones, like the Huffington Post, Gawker, Boing Boing; or Eater and Daily Candy, also American, which are about where to go to eat.
I have a little pocket journal. I just put the pen on the paper and just go.
One of the greatest technicians of all time was a man named W. D. Gann (1878-1955). He had tremendous success predicting market moves much in advance. Legend has it that he occasionally sent notes to ‘The Wall Street Journal’, which accurately predicted tops and bottoms in grain markets months ahead of time.
I wrote songs when I was little, and I wrote a journal, but I don’t think I knew how to let that truth come out yet.
I did go on safari in Kenya when I was 17, with my mother, stepfather and little brother, and I kept a careful journal of the experience that was very helpful in terms of my sensory impressions of Africa. I have traveled quite a bit at distinct times in my life, though now that I have kids I’ve settled down.
Social media is just an online journal.
My mom used to cut out articles from the ‘Atlanta Journal Constitution‘ when I was in high school. She would either give them to me to read or she would post them on the fridge. These articles would usually be stories of someone inventing something, breaking records, or achieving some kind of success.
I used to love writing in my journal.
The keyboard is my journal.
Among the fables that inspired the British Admiralty’s cartographic assignments to Captain James Cook in the 1770s and Captain George Vancouver in the 1790s was a 1640 account under the name of Bartholomew de Fonte that appeared in a journal with the delightful title ‘The Monthly Miscellany, or Memoirs for the Curious.’
I don’t think I’m an angry person. I think I’m a person who’s angry. I’m angry at the Bush administration; I’m angry at the right wing media. And by that I don’t mean the media is right wing. I mean, there is a part of the media that’s not the mainstream media. That’s Fox, that is ‘The Wall Street Journal’ editorial page.
I never thought I’d be on the cover of the ‘Atlanta Journal’ unless I killed someone.
Rap was more of a release for me, a journal.
I keep a journal, and every day I write down one great play that I had that day. I don’t write down any negatives.
I keep a quotes journal – of every sentence that I’ve wanted to remember from my reading of the past 30 years.
