I think I'm out of my element, but what the hell. I wonder, are dads allowed in this forum? Anyway, I wrote a 98K semi autobiographical about a drummer boy in the 60's, who at various times imagines himself to be James Bond, Jack Kerouac, Henry Thoreau, Edward Abbey, among others, as he matures in the wacky atmosphere of that time. I keep rewriting the beginning and that is what I could use feedback on at this time, as I languish on the coast of Maine. This forum appears to possess a formidable array of resources, so if you spy a shadowy figure lurking about, it would be me. I wish all of us the best of luck!
