Howdy neighbors! I cannot express how glad I am to find this forum and realize that I am not a huge failure as a writer. I just lack discipline. I recently came home from the Iraq theater, full of stories, and just bursting at the seams to get them on paper, however, whenever I sit down to put words on paper the bourbon also starts flowing, (a proper Mint Julip is a thing of beauty) and the next thing I know I have a page and a half of random, rambling, meanderings, that wander all over the place, and say the same thing over and over and over. Awful stuff really. Painful to read. I truly do not see how ole Ernie Hemingway pulled it off. But enough about me now, you all will begin to think I'm some narcissitic fellow if I keep this up. Tell me about all of you. I am always curious about meeting new folks!
