Dreams, Memoir, Writing

Visionboarding & Organization

My Memoir Visionboard doubles as a place to keep organized. Notice the blank spaces, those are for writing my "scenes to-do lists" which are the scenes I need to write, and then I'll cross them out as I go. And the wheel in the middle is my "full-circle story", which reveals that I've not yet completed the beginning but have written much of the content in the middle.
My memoir Visionboard doubles as a place to keep organized. Notice the blank spaces, those are for writing my “scenes to-do lists” which are the scenes I still need to write ( I’ll cross them out as I go). And the wheel in the middle is my “full-circle story”, which shows the general idea of my memoir starting at the top and traveling counter clockwise.
My full-circle story diagram. Its a start. It could definitely be elaborated on. It helps. I think.

My main goal of 2013 (if it happens sooner, great) is to find meaning in my story. Like, one meaning, or two, but no more than three. A "theme" if you will. A "take-home message". The "moral of the story".

I like this little corner of the Visionboard. Often as I'm writing in my journal I'll think of an idea like "Choose Your Own Adventure" ending and I'll just write that and a light bulb to signify "idea". Well, now I have an "idea" corner. For all my ideas about my memoir. It helps. I think.

My life Visionboard. It's more intracite than the other Visionboard, and every space is filled with images I clipped out of magazines.

The idea is that you instinctively clip images and words without thinking too much about it and tape or paste them together--the result reveals truths about you. Truth about me: I want to be able to work a "real job" and be a successful writer too. I want them both. Surely, I can have them both.

I find this portion of my vision board to be very mysterious.
I find this portion of my Visionboard to be very mysterious. Especially the bottom left corner. That’s my hand writing.
This part represents where I come from and also, the future, when I am able to settle down there. This section has a lot of hidden meaning. Notice the "pursuit of happiness". I guess that's what I'm on. The pursuit of happiness.
This part represents where I come from but also the future. This section has a lot of hidden meaning. It conjures many thoughts for me. Pursuit of Happiness.

  1. That’s impressive. I hope these weren’t cut from your neighbors’ magazines, the neighbors who happened to be out of town for a weekend and accidentally left their door unlocked.
