Storyboard Text

  • Notes can be angry comments towards the author after every paragraph on every page, because its not how I want to be, because if I met the writer I would beat some logic into their head.
  • Other comments are more negative, against the writer. I remember reading The Life of Emily Dickinson, wondering what the person who wrote "Don't be a ninny" would look like.
  • Students seem to write less, only leaving short comments splattered across the pages. Simple one word responses, and repeated words. One noted " irony" fifty times in the blanks of A Modest Proposal.
  • Some readers express their excitement, cheering on the authors as a lonely fan. Exclamation points and excited words line the blank boarders of the page.
  • If you've never noticed the small, important details of a text, maybe now is the time to try it.
  • We all use the black spaces of the stories as our own, scribbling with a pen as if to show the author that we really read it, and that we get it. We want to press our thoughts permanintly into the page.
  • Even the monks wrote their thoughts in the boarders of the Gospel, writing in a gently lit hall. Men who's name that will never be known, and thoughts that will forever be seen.
  • Yet there is one that I think of quite often, like a photograph stored in a locket, written in a copy of Catcher in the Rye that I borrowed from the library. I was still a young boy, reading books in my bedroom. Yet my loneliness was vastly amplified, when I found this on the page.
  • There were a few greasy stains, and a thought in soft lead pencil, written by a beautiful girl who I will never meet, "Pardon the egg salad stains, but I'm in love"
