    Notebooks Filled With Thoughts

    Ever since I wa 13 I have written down my thoughts on notebooks and in them. Some are little descriptions I like while others are stories. Whenever I have an idea that pops in my head I jote it down. I must have nearly 30 note books not all of them filled but almost half are.
