If you've ever wondered what it's like to run a magazine or how crazy my personal life is, be sure to read the behind-the-scenes peek at the daily trials and tribulations of running True West. Culled straight from my Franklin Daytimer, it contains actual journal entries, laid out raw and uncensored. Some of it is enlightening. Much of it is embarrassing, but all of it is painfully true.
In addition to this current journal, my early journal entries show the rocky road and money lost in the True West Business Timeline.
Bob's biography - The Unvarnished Truth
July 14, 2012
Working today on a very ambitious scene illustrating how the legendary Red Ghost came to have a skeleton on it's back.
Allegedly, at a remote Arizona camp, a raw recruit was having trouble staying on his camel and an officer lashed him to the beast then quirted the camel and sent the two on their way. Of course, the story is full of holes (the recruit couldn't untie himself?) Very hard to believe, but this is how myths and legends begin. I picture this as being Fort Mojave, Camp Beale or Camp Hualapai, but the distant mountains kind of look like Four Peaks, so maybe Fort McDowell. Need to finish it tomorrow. Off to a dinner party.
