I began Mind Stream in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1991. I did perhaps 18 pages, a stream-of-consciousness effort just to get familiar with my first computer. I returned to the story periodically, most recently Fall of 2009 when I tweaked it and finally added the character turning to read a novel called My Me which takes up the rest of the book. My Me came from 1971 when I decided to write three pages a day in the stream-of-consciousness style. After 109 typewritten pages I stopped and packed it away until 1982 when I worked on it some then packed it away again. So in 2009 I added it to Mind Stream, tweaking it one final time.
