This post is a little different from our usual post because instead of giving my opinion about other people's writing, I am putting up my own writing up into the Internet void.
Putting my own work out, especially a fiction, is scary. And, surprisingly, very personal because it is something originating from my own imagination. It's all me--as oppose to say an essay where I do a lot research to support my ideas and opinions. But if I want to be serious about my secret dream [that I don't want to be kept secret anymore] of becoming a writer I think a good first step is to have other people outside of Leslie read what I write and maybe get some opinions.
I wrote this a couple of months ago. It's the opening chapter of an idea I had floating around in my head. I don't know yet if I want to keep going with the story.
The working title is The Burden of Memory. I edited some but I suck at editing so there might be some grammatical typos in there. Please let me know what you think.
Thank you for reading,
P.S. Any constructive criticism is welcome.
