Memoirs of a Lower Middle Class Man Looking at 30
There has been this gnawing aching feeling in the back of my head to just let my fingers crush a keyboard. Since I stopped drinking and general tom foolery my brain has come back to life... (only when I get things under control at work though - kind of like today).
I doubt anyone would want to read it but I feel like my story is one that should be put down on paper. I think it's funny. I think I can write about it truly and I think that too many of the great people I know aren't written about enough. I also think it'll be so brutally honest and self deprecating and outwardly attacking to some - that I'll have to keep it a secret and just have it for me. I may release the chapter titles and excerpts from time to time.
I finished a 60 page short story not too long ago about a fat outcaste headed to college. He ended up shooting his best friend by accident and marrying his mother's best friend...and found out that I didn't like the story that much - - also my writing partner - Douglas - sort of disappeared on me. But - this time - it feels different.
I'd like to finish it for my 30th birthday and give it to myself and then burn it or publish it under a different name. Well self-publish it. BTW - my editor wants to publish my marketing articles. LOL I don't think they are that good but you feel free to be a judge. http://www.moneymorningaffiliates.com/ - they are under the recent articles section in the bottom right
Either way - I'd like to start writing more that I'm in a good place with work, house, love, and life. I'd like to take time to reflect and jot down some of these amazing memories of mine before they all sort of melt away into bedtime stories.
I hope everyone out in cyber world is well and I know I would love to see or speak to some of you that I have not seen or spoken to in quite some time.
All my best - and truly yours,
p.s. - the first chapter is called "The Dukes of Hazard and the Marvelous Memory of a Mistake"
