This is my original journal that I wrote when I was seventeen years old. It is the basis for my edgy, coming-of-age novel: 4″ written under the name Gabe Hooton. This photo shows the journal, old photos, and the box in which I keep the manuscript.
You can read 4″ at amazon.com. Just search by title and Gabe Hooton.
More old photos of my life when I was a teenager and the actual newspaper clipping that reported the near fatal car accident I was in.
This is what my handwriting looks like in the journal from 1971.
