I was born in the wastelands of the American Midwest, and I still live there, much to everyone's regret. I started writing as a teenager as a side effect of what psychologists refer to as the "personal fable." I believed that I was unique, that my personal life story impacted the world, and that the world revolves around me. In my mid-twenties, I picked up writing again because I was sick of reading slosh and tired of having to go back fifty years to find books I actually want to read. I was especially over the only gay literature available in 2008 being soft core porn romance bullshit with jacked, oiled-up porn stars on the covers. I decided that if I wanted to read something that wasn't 500 pages of comma abuse and boners, I'd have to write it myself. So I did. It may not be the best, but it's what I want to read. Thank you for the support, and I hope my writing means something to you as well.
I don't do flashy covers, because a good story speaks beyond the cover. I want my stories to pull readers in by the weight of their contents.

I try my very best to be objective about any book that I read. I always want to go into reading something with an open mind, and not "expect" anything, hence being able to provide a review on the content without any prejudice.
I say all of that to say this. I think that I've been robbed an actual story here. There isn't really any "middle" or "end", it's just a beginning and then it stops.
Basically, this is a "story" about reminiscing on things that never happened. Yet, it really cannot be called a story at all, as it's just about 2 pages worth of pointless jargon.
To tell the truth, I'm sort of upset, because I think that this is a story that has some potential, had it actually been completed or elaborated on.
Now, a bit about the writing style.
The writing style is a bit bland--lot's of "he says/he does" without any real depiction. Also, it's unfortunately written in a style that I find hard to execute properly, that being First Person/Present Tense. The trick with properly executing this style is being able to tell the story descriptive and interactively from a First Person perspective. Sadly, that was not accomplished here.
All of this boils down to two things:
(1) I really wish there had been more. As in, a full story.
(2) The writing, as a whole, could have been better.
