New writings about soldiers experiences.

Anyone interested in writing about their experiences could benefit from joining a creative writing workshop. There is usually one around nearby. There are charitable organisations that aim to promote reading and writing - the Scottish Books Trust recently ran the "Days Like These" essay project to collect short narratives based on personal experiences. Workshops can identify such opportunities.

There is a lot of talent out there and it doesn't have to be Bravo Two Zero stuff. George MacDonald Fraser's recollections - Quartered Safe Out Here and the McAuslan series - are amongst the best, and his experiences were probably typical of his generation.

A compilation of military short stories and recollections could raise a lot of money for Service charities. Authors should be rightly protective of their own work as well though.

So sorry.

I was unsure of the response I would get as I am a newcomer to the site.

David is looking to get published so he can hopefully help veterans like himself.

He has been out for three years having served for 22, he served like many after leaving the Army within the FCO.

He ended up living on the streets, fortunately he was rescued unlike many.

I was curious on where to post the comment, now it seems a little clearer.

I dont think that makes me abnormal, does it?
