My Short Story

This is my first short story. I have so very many things to tell you about it. I’ll do that later.

For now, I’ll just post it here. Warning: I have a criminal disregard for formatting. I’ve done my best, but honestly a line of dialogue once killed my parents and I’ve never been able to bring myself to properly punctuate them since.

Please, PLEASE, leave me comments guys. Especially if you don’t like it, or it confused you, or you think I’ve committed an unforgivable crime against the craft of writing and should have all my keyboards taken away.

Even if you’ve never commented before, please do it now. This is a learning experience for me and I’m almost entirely self-taught where fiction is concerned.

Which means most of the time, my teacher was an idiot.
