Naw big fella, just confine your writings to the walls of public restroom stalls for higher reader volume.

Mr. Jay

You should consider learning to write. You seem to have a vivid imagination and several of your anecdotes are really quite interesting. There are several accomplished writers in this area but I don't know of a formal writers' group. There are some in Jacksonville.

You seem to prefer writing in the first person, making yourself the hero, villain, or victim of the story. That is a widely accepted form, but I caution you to not let yourself believe too much your own fiction.

Writing, be it short stories or a full fledged novel, would be an excellent avocation for someone in your situation. I wish you luck should you decide to proceed.

By the way, I believe that Barnes and Noble book store in Jacksonville may have a list of writers' groups.

Moreno is a real red-neck good old southern boy. He thinks everything is better if it fried up in hot grease.

Trust me, I don't need lessons. I scored in the 99+ percentile of the verbal section of the SAT in 1965. Over the years, several English professors have encouraged me to publish stories I've written as class assignments. I have written third person versions of actual true events in Viet Nam.

By the way, every word of the stories of my being attacked in Dong Ha and the hush puppy girl story are absolutely true.

Thanks for the left handed compliment and advice - really.

When my "executor" plate is cleared, I just might write a novel based on the A-holes of Camden County. Names will be just sufficiently different to avoid law suits.

Damn all the English professors who tell students that they are born authors and should publish. The truth is, almost all of those professors are not successful writers. Writing is difficult and involves much more than scoring well on a SAT. Natural writers like Stephen King or J.K. Rolling are one out of millions.

If you want to write a novel seeking some kind of vengeance on your neighbors, realize it will be for your enjoyment only. You can change names as you will, but if the characters are are recognizable and based on real people, you are still wide open to law suits.

Don't dismiss lightly the idea of joining a writers' group. For the aspiring writer, they can be enjoyable and interesting while teaching you a lot about style and the tricks of writing for the populous.

We know you can write. How well is the question. What ever you write would be classified as fiction by almost all on this site.

okay...you took the SAT back in 1965, and scored exceptionally well. So, why didn't you go on to college at that time and do something with your life????
You don't have the ability that you claim to have or you would have done something way back then. You live in a fantasy world. You are so sick, Jay. You honestly need help.

So Jay takes a young lady back to his apartment after their first date and plies her with wine while he cooks hush puppies. His date passes out and falls face first into a skillet full of hot grease and hush puppies. Jay pulls her out of the sizzling grease by hair and drops her to the floor while he goes for a towel. On returning, he rips off her blouse and bra, apparently ignoring her face, drags her to a cold shower where he joins her. After the shower, he rubs ointment on her breasts and face then proceeds to continue with his dinner plans after which he downplays the seriousness of her burns and spends the night with her doing all he could to "distract her from her burns." Only on the following day, Jay took the poor young lady home and to a hospital to be treated for severe second degree burns.

Great date, our Jay.
