Journal of a Man of Letters - Live Journal Master Post



Journal of a Man of Letters is a project I started on Tumblr in April 2013 (Gen - PG for language). It's a diary in first-person narrative written from Sam's point of view. Once a week, I post an art and a ficlet inspired by an episode or a scene. I'm following the show timeline as close as I can but I'm taking liberty with canon here and there.

Acknowlements

This project would never be the same without the help of  [livejournal.com profile] becc_j, [livejournal.com profile] maichan and [livejournal.com profile] quickreaver who kindly, patiently, beta my English week after week. Basically, if Sam doesn't speak Frenglish, it's thanks to them! A big THANK YOU girls for you help and your enthusiasm!! In other words, if you think that my English in this post is a bit strange, don't worry, the ficlets below are very different.

Journal of a Man of Letters F.A.Q


Where do you post?
On Tumblr. I created a blog especially for this project. Don't expect a great layout and sassy gifs, the design is rather minimalistic. I'm not very fond of layouts that sparkle like a Christmas Tree.

When do you post?
I'm trying to post one entry a week, usually on Monday night at around 11:00 pm (Paris - France time)

I don't want to read this on Tumblr, it's not very pleasant. What can I do?
You can download the entries in the form of a custom PDF on Mediafire
- Entries 1 to 10 HERE.
- Entries 11 to 20 HERE
- Entries 21 to 30 HERE
- Entries 31 to 40 HERE
- Entries 41 to 50 HERE
- Entries 51 to 60 HERE

Will you post on Live Journal?
No, but this Master Post will be updated with links to new entries every week.

Will you write some Wincest or Destiel in your Man of Letters Journal?
Nope! My Sam’s Journal is and will remain 100% gen. I really want it to stay close to the show mythology even if I’m taking some liberty with canon here and there. I have nothing against slash (look at my art ) but I know I would suck at writing it and I don’t feel the need too. I prefer exploring Sam’s mind regarding family relationships, hunting and death.

Will you do the same thing for Dean?
No, this project is very time consuming. If I do the same thing for Dean, I would have to leave my job and hire an assistant. ^^;;

I want to start my own Sam's Journal, can I?
I often have this question on Tumblr and the answer is "Yes, absolutely!". I don't have the monopole of the concept or the character and there's never enough Sam (or Dean) 's diaries out there!

What softwares do you use for the art?
Photoshop CS6 and Painter 12

I went to check out the Tumblr page for your Sam's Journal. Why is Entry #18 posted above Entry #19?
Because Tumblr fucked up. I posted the two entries the same day, Entry #18 THEN Entry #19. Everything was fine until I edited Entry #18 to change a word. Now Entry #18 is above Entry #19, in spite of all my efforts. Tumblr...Don't ever change.
