Floating: A Memoir

2013-01-19 15:42:31 by Luke

Hey guys.
I recently finished my latest writing project, it is a fictional memoir of a man named Derek.
The memoir focuses on Derek's addiction to cocaine, and his addiction to his girlfriend, Elisabeth.
There are many tales told within, of drug abuse, relationships, alcoholism, and so on.
I can only say so much.
I'd appreciate it if it would be read and left criticism as well, I am beginning to pick up writing again and have finished two projects this year so far.

"There she was, off in the distance. A shadow, a silhouette. A figure unknown, unknown to everybody but me. I could just tell, I just knew, I had that feeling. The girl of my dreams, the love of my life.
She stood at the edge of the bridge's rails. She looked down, looked up. I couldn't see it, but I could feel it. A menacing grin, it felt evil. So unlike her.
She looked toward me, again, I couldn't see this, but I could feel it. Her eyes pierced through mine, into my brain. She'd stare at me the entire way down. She'd fall, staring at me. Not losing that eye contact. She'd hit the water, and she'd die. Floating away from me, further and further away. All I could do was stand there and watch her, the love of my life, my soul mate, my second half. I'd watch her float, and I'd never see her again."

I will surely read that when I have time. Sounds interesting.

Luke responds:

Oh damn, it makes readers log in? I may fix that then, thanks for pointing that out, PIED.

Sounds awesome. I'm not really into those sorts of books but I think it would appeal to a lot of people.
I didn't read the whole thing (too long for me lol) but I think it's great. Keep it up.
