They say there is a book in everyone but what do you do when you didn’t pay much attention when you were in English in school . I should have listened more to what my teacher was trying to tell me or I should have more time now to maybe go back to school to study English .
See about two years ago now or longer myself and a friend decided one night to see if we could each come up with a book idea We did it for the laugh more than anything . I said to her there is no way I will be able to think of anything to write a whole book on at times I have trouble reading a whole book without trying to write one :). As the weeks went by we came up with characters , their names , where they would live and what would happen to them along the way and that was it that’s as far as either of us got .
Then at the start of June I was going through the App store one evening and I came across an App called Opus , this is where you write stories , poems or anything you want to really and publish them and like a blog or instagram you get followers and people leave you comments. So I decided I would root out my little notebook and this is what I came up with ………
‘ My head was still buzzing when I arrived home that night. I couldn’t believe what I had just done , was I slowly losing the run of myself at my age ? maybe so but I didn’t care. His smell , his taste , the way he looked and the way he spoke was all I wanted . It was intense , spontaneous and I wanted more a lot more.
In my moment of excitement I didn’t register the car drive in , it was one of those sounds that you hear but don’t really hear . It was his voice shouting my name that brought me back to reality and brought me out in a cold fearful sweat.
What was he doing here at this time of night ? and why tonight ? . One hundred questions ran through my mind , someone told him they saw me , he saw me or maybe I was just over reacting maybe he was just drunk and came over to ruin my night .
I quickly got out of my clothes and but on my boring pyjamas and went outside looking back I should have stayed inside . The shouting started , then he grabbed me glass fell down around my feet it was like slow motion . The sharp sound of glass hitting the ground , his voice , my breathing my whole world seemed to slow down ………………..’
That’s it ,that’s as far as I have gotten and to be honest have no idea how to get it any further and I would like to . I won’t make any best seller lists but for me I would like to write it . So if anyone knows what I should do next then let me know :).
