In my final year of high school I took a creative writing class. I signed up for it primarily because I needed an extra semester of English to graduate that year. I didn't end up writing much I'm terribly attached to, but the things we read for the class include some of my favorite poems and stories. I've been carrying around a stack of photocopies for about four years now, so I decided to put them together into a book. It's just an old yard sale book with photocopies glued or taped in, but it's something I think I'll be glad to have for a long time.

Nifty idea for a scrapbook (I have not encountered it before). Palimpsest... future librarians will have to steam off your additions to find the only remaining copy of "Shadow of the Valley of the Dolls."
