Use the comments section to write a brief story plot and opening scene. One that any other writer can add one of their own characters into. Add to your own story anytime, keeping in mind what other writers have added.
Feel free to jump into anyone else’s story with one of your own characters. If a thousand monkeys with typewriters can write a story, so can we!
If things get a little confusing, just remember the first rule of writing:
When in doubt, assume that you know what you are doing.
I’ll begin, with the first comment being my own story plot and opening scene. Hopefully, others will jump into my plot and turn it into a story.
And/or add their own story plot!
Enjoy the mayhem 😝
Severely beaten as a child by a WWII hero and combat-induced-PTSD stepfather, the author, as a teen, faced the old man down with a shotgun and earned his blessing to join the military at the time Americans were learning about a country called Vietnam. The “lazy, no good son-of-a-bitch” opted out of combat and hard labor by becoming an Air Force medic, stamping out suffering and misery on Freedom’s Frontier at Clark Airbase in S.E. Asia and earning some kind of medal pinned on him personally by then Secretary of the Air Force, Harold Brown, for “Saving lives, etc.”
There followed a summer in Europe ending in the first of happy marriages. Then graduation with University Honors, kids worth dying for and a career in business. Life is good.
