So what'll it be?

Recommended Posts

Here's a bump' date=' so it's easier to find. I hope any new readers find the story engaging. I'd love to rewrite it and someday I will.[/quote']

 

Im not gonna go through this whole thing and read through your life story, is their anything in particular you want to point out. Because in my opinion you can really justify walking out on what you were sworn to do. It's not like quitting a job at ****ing burger king.

I'm sorry that you feel that way.

 

It's not my life story, though, I get through the foundation in a few brief pages. This is the story of the two worst things I've ever done in my life. There are three timelines, the timeline for when I was 17-18, the timeline for 21-22 (military,) and then present day irrelevancies. It's real and true, it's entertaining and it's purpose is to give a little insight into what I did, sort of why but not really and exactly how I did it.

 

There's no one particular thing I want to point out.

I have, for the first time since I've written it, read this work through. I implore those who enjoy a good story, to read this.

 

I am currently working on another book, though it won't be published here..maybe.

 

Anyway....BUMP!

My parents thought I was mentally handicapped, possibly retarded when I was very young.

It was so poorly written. I could do so much better now.

 

After I wrote that I had these ideas about maybe becoming a writer, and I started writing all the time. I wrote a few short stories and I made a couple attempts at writing books, but I got away from that. I haven't scribbled more than a few sentences together in over five years other than this forum, the occasional text message or the infrequent email. But I'm so disappointed when I read this, so artless and aimless, that I feel an itch to try tell this story again.

Thankfully no. But I do agree with their assessment of him those many years ago.

 

See, I will add I either forgot, or did not know. Soup is a confessed deserter as well. It goes great with his list of accomplishments.

I am incredibly honest.

I wouldn't. If there is beauty in this it's the fact that, that is exactly how you were, how you saw those moments at that time that you wrote it. We change in eight years. Our perspective is always changing, we're always evolving as people.
