Hump Day Kick Start – Unsaid Edition

Hump Day Kick Start – for your muse, a writing picture prompt, or just a visual treat.

This is gonna hurt. Someone, anyway. Who wrote in this journal? To whom was it written for? What exactly is inside? Could it be love notes written to a best friend? Or a book of confessions? If so, what kind of confessions? A true identity? Infidelity? Murder? Maybe the author suffers from demons they couldn’t share out loud.  Maybe those demons weren’t just inside their head but were people close to them. What if the journal contains poems of falling out of love? Or maybe this is a list of all the girlfriend or wife’s preferred places to eat.

What’s your take? Tell me a tale or caption the pic. I’d love to hear from you.

    “So, you found a diary,” said Wilfred. “What’s so special about that?”
    “It’s not a diary,” replied Susie, “it’s more like a journal. It’s things the writer wanted to tell, but either couldn’t or just didn’t. Not sure which.”
    “Does it make a difference?” he asked.
    “Definitely. If this is journal, as I believe, then the writer was likely jotting down things that happened, basically right after they happened, thereby providing a sense of immediacy to the historical events which serve as the background to that writer’s time.”
    “Uh, so what is the time of this writer, anyway? 1980s or something?”
    “no, not even close, Wilfred,” she replied. “This material dates back to the 1830s. And a particular section dates to 1836.”
    “Okay, a long time ago… so what?”
    “Ever hear of the battle of San Jacinto?”
    “Nope,” said Wilfred resolutely.
    “Ever hear of Santa Anna?”
    “I’ve heard of Santa Claus,” he said with a smirk.
    “You’re hopeless. Here we have the journal of a famous individual who’s been shrouded in myth and mystery for all this time, and now we can study the contemporaneous writing to learn exactly what happened and why… and possibly even how come these secrets have been kept all these years.”
    “Okay, so tell me the writer’s name already.”
    “Emily D. West.”
