My Book

#3
It's a page turner so far.
Slight probs with the protagonist, his lifestyle (smoking, drinking, mysogynistic attitudes, racism etc.) also his habit of filling in anyone who disagrees with him has left a body count of 52 so far.
When will page 2 be ready for reading?

It's autobiographical as it were,

This is the first paragraph.

I'm a Londoner, born with the dulcet tones of the bells of St Mary-le-Bow church ringing in my ears or they would have been if they hadn't been destroyed by Hitlers quest to kill my mum (more later) which makes me … a Cockney.

A simple yes would have sufficed!

I've started to write down a few musings, I'm not a writer but do you think it's worth the effort?
What do you plan to do with it when finished?

You're Arthur English from 'Are you being served' when do I get my fiver?

Well I thought that enough could be sold as fuel to ward off starvation.

Here's part two

The man most responsible for me being the man I am today is ironically Adolf Hitler and his quest to kill my mum (more later). Cast your mind back to 1939, storm clouds gather over Europe and the British Government worried about Hitlers quest to kill my mum (more later) decide that she would be better off in the countryside and so it was that a lonely frightened five year old girl found herself on the train to the west country.

" a lonely five year old girl on a train......". Do go on. I'm starting to be interested. If you find a way to merge a Stumpy story into it, I'll paypal you in advance.

I have had a few half-arsed attempts at writing and abandoned them all.

Would recommend this: Politics and the English Language - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Yes I do, but suggest you go easy on the musing. If you've done something interesting write about that. How interesting and to how many people only you can guess. As with most things writing needs practice, but easy enough on a word processor. Start with some key words/chapter headings for a bit of structure. Keep banging away and revising as you go until you finish up with something concise and readable. And remember the everyday details that "serious" writers often leave out, possibly because they don't understand them.

Read similar things that other people have done to find out which styles work best. Get some constructive criticism before you do too much.

Have a go and enjoy it.

I was going to write a book about growing up in Bongo Bongo land and then going to play soldiers but two bastards did it for me before I could start and wrote Mukiwa and 19 with a Bullet.

So you can fuck off.
