There is a title for the book that I’m leaning toward — or at least playing with. It’s been stuck in my head for a few months now and I think it is perfect, which of course automatically makes me suspicious.
However (and based on what the title is, ironically) I had affirmation of it this morning. There is a reference to a concept I read in “The Gang That Wouldn’t Write Straight” that echoed the title perfectly. I looked up the reference this morning, and in retrospect I think I’ve heard it before — it seems to be hanging out in the periphery of my memory. (Though my brain could be making that all up. He likes to plant false memories in me, and then laugh as I thrash about trying to come to terms with them.)
The thing is, it’s not just the sentiment that’s echoed, it’s essentially the exact same quote just with different words. Did my brain do this subconsciously? Maybe. Doesn’t much matter though, in the end. I take all the credit — and the blame — for everything he does.
I realize it’s hard to describe without giving you the name of the title, and I’m actually dying to do just that. I don’t want to be a tease, but I am basically just not ready to reveal. I have to go with my instinct on this one. I hope you understand.
However, I do want to make note of the time and day it happened, hence this “Note to Self”.
