First Chapter -- First Paragraph -- Tuesday Intros
Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea has started a fun new meme First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. This week's intro is from the memoir 33 Days: Touring in a Van, Sleeping on Floors, Chasing a Dream by Bill See,
The time has come to be brave.
For the first time in my life -- all 22 years of it -- I wake up today with this crazy-ass belief. If I can just get myself in that van I might have a chance . . . to make it possible.
Today the door opens. The culmination of three years of maniacial drive towards a singular goal. To get out of this haunted house and get my band, Divine Weeks, on tour. It's all I've thought about the last three years, daydreaming in class and writing out imaginary tour dates. Toiling at my windowless shit day job, shuffling papers everyday, helping rich men get richer while my dream just sits out there waiting for me to seize it.
I'm a reader/commuter in the DC Metro Area. My daily commute to work provides me with ample time to do what I love most: read! Whether its chick lit, literature, memoirs or other non fiction you can always find me with a book.
