Hi everyone first post so nice to meet you all. Right well basically i really like to write fiction, dont do it as much as i should or would like to but thats irreelivant. In my A level eng lang course i need to do a piece of own writing be it an interview, short story etc. I'v decided to do a short story and i would like to run some ideas past you all. Okay, the setting is in Somalia/Ethiopia some african country not sure yet, and is based primarily around a short ut brutal conflict between some native africans and some white americans/british whatever thats not important yet. Anyway the book starts with the main character, a male, reading an extract from a teach yourself chess book. The theme of this chess book are carried throughout the story obviouslyrelated ot the engagement in my story to that of a game of chess. Obviously there will be more to it than that but that is the bare,bare,bare bones of it. Just something to work from. I was wanting some kind of feed back on both the above text and ideas and also on how you think the story could develop. Thank you very much for reading and sorry for the wall of text. Cheers.
